Subject [Issue 125162] New: numbers as dates
Date Thu, 26 Jun 2014 14:14:05 GMT

          Issue ID: 125162
        Issue Type: DEFECT
           Summary: numbers as dates
           Product: Calc
           Version: 4.0.1
          Hardware: PC
                OS: Windows 7
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P3
         Component: formatting

Many times when I enter a number (even a number smaller than 5 digits) in a
cell formatted as number, it shows up as a date; if I then delete that entry
and re-enter the same number in the same cell it shows as a number (as
desired).    WHY?    I typically enter many numbers without paying much
attention, then when I look back expecting to see the numbers entered, I
instead see dates! That is very frustrating & requires doing double work to
correct the problem. The numbers I enter are actual numbers, not formulas that
produce numbers.
