Example file from Excel
Attached file contains a simple macro to set cell number format to percentage with 1 decimal place.
This call does not work in Calc with hu-HU locale, but works with en-US locale.
Columns("B").NumberFormat = "0.0%"
Steps to reproduce:
1. Open attached xlsm file
2. Run the macro in Excel and Calc
Values in column B: 1 and 12,5 become in Excel 100,0% and 1250,0% and 10.0% and 125.0% in Calc
However this works correctly with en-US locale since the decimal separator is dot there, but comma in hu-HU.
Macro works regardless of locale.

There exists a workaround, if you set the locale. However, it is still an inconvenience.
Function cellRange_SetNumberFormat( strSourceRange As String, strNumberFormat As String ) As Long
REM Sets the Number Format of the specified CellRange to <strNumberFormat>.
REM <strNumberFormat> : The desired Number Format specification string (e.g. "0.00").
REM NB. The given Format will be added to the NumberFormats, if it doesn't exist already.
Dim aLocale As New com.sun.star.lang.Locale
Dim oNumberFormats As Object : oNumberFormats = ThisComponent.getNumberFormats()
Dim oSheet As Object : oSheet = ThisComponent.CurrentController.ActiveSheet
Dim oRange As Object : oRange = oSheet.getCellRangebyName( strSourceRange )
Dim lFormatKey As Long : lFormatKey = oNumberFormats.queryKey( strNumberFormat, aLocale, FALSE )
If lFormatKey = -1 Then lFormatKey = oNumberFormats.addNew( strNumberFormat, aLocale )
oRange.NumberFormat = lFormatKey
cellRange_SetNumberFormat = lFormatKey
Dear NISZ LibreOffice Team,
To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.
