Dear all 


I'd like some help. Most likely the screenshot explains it.

Datevalue(januar 2016) returns 01-01-2016 

Datevalue(january 2016) returns #Value

My sheet is in English

My Excel is in English

My windows is in English

My windows date settings are in Danish

The users of the excel documents windows date settings will be Danish, Polish, Romanian, French, Estonian.

Any suggestions how to solve my issue on a global scale?
