I ask you again and again to make an option for which is mentioned in the topic!
Imagine the following: I need to fill in a very long table with numbers in its column. They are:
Then imagine me, a LibO user, who is looking with his eyes only on a paper sheet containing the numbers and who is blindly typing the numbers with his right hand and using the right (number) keyboard only. I’m typing:
1 8 dot 6 5 enter 1 2 3 dot 5 4 enter 6 dot 0 5 enter 9 8 dot 4 5 enter etc.
Then I look at what I’ve just typed and what I see?
WHY THE F**K has my 6.05 become a DATE??? HAVE I mf-asked you to make it a date?
I do understand that you TRANSLATED my string ‘18.65’ to a number 18.65, but I DON’T want any date to appear on my spreadsheet unless I DELIBERATELY ask your Calc to convert my string ‘6.05.17’ to the date of May 6th, 2017!
So at last what I want, demand, necessitate, require, claim, insist! - whatever: PLEASE MAKE AN OPTION FOR THE IMPLICIT CONVERSION TO A DATE VALUE!!! Or at least give me a choice whether to convert #.## to a date or not!
Consider this: if any mf-user does want his ‘6.05’ converted to a date, he’ll type in ‘6.5.17’ - and let this string (and NOT ‘6.05’ or even ‘6.5’!!!) become a date!
I don’t know where else to apply with this request, so please answer anything to me here!!!
