Subject: [OASIS Issue Tracker] Created: (OFFICE-1505) <table:null-date>definition

<table:null-date> definition

                 Key: OFFICE-1505
                 URL: http://tools.oasis-open.org/issues/browse/OFFICE-1505
             Project: OASIS Open Document Format for Office Applications (OpenDocument) TC
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: General
    Affects Versions: ODF 1.2
            Reporter: Andreas Guelzow 
            Priority: Minor

The <table:null-date> element by itself may not uniquely identify the "date->numerical number" conversion for dates after 1900/3/1. This is due to the fact that some applications have an extra step from 1900/2/28 to 1900/3/1. The OpenFormula draft suggests that documents misrepresent the <table:null-date> so that calculations  after 1900/3/1 are correct. This is an unnecessary contradiction between the definition of <table:null-date> and the OpenFormula date description.

A close related omission is that hte standard does not specify how the numerical values change as the date changes. (It is assumed in general that this is linear with slope 1 but the standard fails to specify this.)
