date displays wrong

I enter the date in format MM/DD/YR but it displays as DD/MM/YR even though I have it set for MM/DD/YR? Can’t find a solution.

(Well, I know, the date-time formats used to mark posts in this askbot site are extremely funny. And I have no hope this will be changed one day to something roughly reasonable.)

You didn’t say anything about your LibreOffice version nor the locale you work in, but it may be bug tdf#125109 which was fixed for LibreOffice 6.2.5

V Southern California. Got it corrected Thank you.
