Subject: RE: [office-formula] Clarify date "basis" value

Hi David...

Sounds reasonable.  The Excel team has been working with WG4 members to write up a defect report on this matter, which will be submitted soon through the usual process for IS29500 maintenance.

Subject: [office-formula] Clarify date "basis" value

I've added a JIRA comment for the key topic:
 Clarify date "basis" value

We had earlier documented what Excel did, and Microsoft has kindly submitted some additional material.  It's my understanding that this is inconsistent with the OOXML definition.  I recommend that we accept the Excel definition as correct, presume that the OOXML definition is in error, and request that someone (who has the authority to do so) submit a change to OOXML to implement the correct spec.

Sound reasonable?
