Your steps worked flawlessly, so thanks very much.


Not sure how or why the formatting of that one cell got changed, but at least I now know what to do if the problem occurs again.

Not sure what might be wrong except that the cell is formatted incorrectly.

When you are on where it says 15 Oct just press Control+1, tab once and make sure the category is “Date”, then tab once more to the “Type” field and select the format you want.

Subject: Strange Excel Problem


Hello, everyone.


Today, I noticed a very strange problem with an Excel spreadsheet that I’m working with.


Typically, when I enter dates into the spreadsheet, I do the following:


For today:  I’d enter 10/15/2018.


This process has worked flawlessly for all dates except for today’s date.


When I enter today’s date as noted above, Jaws reads 15oct.


I even tried entering tomorrow’s date in the next row of the spreadsheet, and it went back to my preferred listing:  10/17/2018.


Can anyone tell me what might be wrong with the October 15th row and first spreadsheet cell for today?


I don’t understand why this particular row is acting so strangely.


I also don’t know how to correct the situation.


Thanks for any assistance.
