Subject Re: Generating excel file with dates prior to 1900
Date Fri, 13 Sep 2013 06:50:04 GMT
You are not missing anything because - and this is the short answer - Excel
treats any date prior to the epoch (1/1/1900) as text.

The only option you have is to code some VBA support for earlier dates or to
use an add-on pack if one is even available. Take a look here to get started
with this issue; http://support.microsoft.com/kb/245104
