On a Mac Mountain Lion, US locales, I'm working on a Spreadsheet with macros like
TEXT(TODAY(), "yyyy-mm-dd")&" is the date"
The problem is that the sheet is also used on computers set with French locale, where the macro expects
TEXT(TODAY(), "aaaa-mm-jj")&" is the date"
#VALUE (since a is for annee/year and j is for jour/day in French, not y and d).
Is there a way - macro style - to make this "yyyy-mm-dd" format more international, or to force Excel to use the "ymd" format even on a Mac using French locale?
(if possible doing this in the same cell, ie without adding a new cell having a date inside then referenced in the displayed cell, since I want to modify the sheet as less as possible)
