Description Marcelo 2015-09-25 15:31:03 UTC
Created attachment 119024 [details]
validity list shows date as general numbers

Supose you create two named ranges:
- one constant 'fixed_range' ranges from: $Sheet1.$A$3:$A$30
- second dynamic size 'dynamic_range' ranges using this formula: $Sheet1.$A$3:INDEX($Sheet1.$A$3:$A$30,COUNT($Sheet1.$A$3:$A$30))

Let's say the data are formatted as date.
Create two validaty cells which items are linked to names 'fixed_range' and 'dynamic_range'.

When you open dynamic_range list the date are shown as general numbers not on date format actually.

** Please read this message in its entirety before responding **

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.

There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.

If you have time, please do the following:

Test to see if the bug is still present with the latest version of LibreOffice from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/

If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.
If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.

Please DO NOT

Update the version field
Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not 
appropriate in this case)

If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:
1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3) from http://downloadarchive.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/old/

2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to 'inherited from OOo';
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add 'regression' to keyword
