Description handyside 2014-06-27 14:28:28 UTC
Date Format set to 31. Dec. 1999
When 5th of July is entered as "5/7", "7. May. 2014" is displayed.
(When 5th of July is entered as "5/7/14", "14. Jul. 2005" is displayed!)

UK format is DD/MM/YYYY
Language is UK
Cell is set to DD. MMM. YYYY
yet still the date displayed is incorrect.

I'm OK with the ISO format SAVING the data that way. 
But I should be able to ENTER the data in the chosen Date Format.
I can in Excel. Why not in OO??
