It is not possible to change the field’s properties in CALC. In WRITER the equivalent field’s properties can be modified so that the date is in ISO8601 format.

(By editing:)
This is concerning the ‘Format’ > ‘Page’ properties ‘Header’ and ‘Footer’ for printing as well.

What is “moderation” and how long does one have to wait before something happens?

I originally posed this question on New Year’s Eve of 2015. We now have Sept. 2019, which accordingly to my maths is a period of >three and a half years and the only thing which appears to have happened is that some person(s) has(have) deemed this as an enhancement?
Where is your professionality?
What do you think of a spreadsheet which has more than one date format?
Is this such a big thing that no one can modify the original code to correct this fault?


You are right… and the request for enhancement has been reported (see).

(I know nothing about moderation on this site sorry, I am user like you…)
