Description thomas 2011-05-13 08:01:20 UTC
In Basic

Dim MyDate As Date
MyDate = "2.4.1945"

throws an error "wrong value or datatype: datatype incompatible".

It is reproducible with 
Win 7 Pro SP1 German OOO330m20
Win 7 Home Premium SP1 OOO320m18
Win 7 LibreOffice

Other dates should work like expected

testes with the following code, "02.04.1945" is the only failure with Integer I = 16529

Sub Main
	Dim I
	Dim MyDate As Date
	Dim Test As String
	On Error Goto ErrorHandler
	For I = 1 To 41000 Step 1 '41000
		MyDate = I
		Test = MyDate
		MyDate = Test
	Next I
	Exit Sub
		msgbox I
End Sub

mybe this is useful:
wikipedia tells, that "02.04.1945" was the beginning of summertime in germany, but ended on different dates in west and ost-germany

Please test in OOo 3.4 beta.
Comment 3 thomas 2011-05-13 10:35:52 UTC
same error on:
Win 7 Pro SP1 German OOO340m0 (with and without German language pack)
Comment 4 r4zoli 2011-05-13 10:54:56 UTC
Added link to OOo user forum post.
Removed target, it can not be set until developer not start working on it.

May be needs to redirect to framework, it is more a StarBasic problem than database bug, but I'm not sure.
Comment 5 Oliver-Rainer Wittmann 2012-06-13 12:31:06 UTC
getting rid of value "enhancement" for field "severity".
For enhancement the field "issue type" shall be used.
