I do not approve of Open Office's default date format. In South Africa we do not use that format. Please pay attention to the date format settings on the computer. A particular frustrating example is entering a date in a table located in a text document. I have to manually change the date format to my satisfactory.

francoisj: What exactly is your current language setting under "Extras / Options / Language Settings / Standard Languages for Documents. Is it "English (South-Africa)" ? And what would be the correct default data format for a "English (South Africa)" Language Setting of the complete document or a single cell in a table ? Is it not MM/DD/YY ?
Comment 3 francoisj 2004-02-28 16:46:27 UTC
South Africa's default settings are DD/MM/YYYY or some may use YYYY/MM/DD.

To grep the issues easier via "requirements" I put the issues currently lying on my owner to the owner "requirements".
