Calc cell type

Hi Vikas,

Dates and times are internally just numbers ("serial date/time"), which are formatted for display as dates or times. For pivot tables, there's IsDateDimension methods (in ScDPCache and others), which help in the pivot table specific case.

Possibly it's better to refer to specific issue # or gerrit patch related to those transformations to allow some better suggestions?

Best regards,

Hello all,

I am trying to write some datatransformations related to date-time for calc.

Is there any way to determine whether a column stores date or time value? I was only able to find CELLTYPE_STRING, CELLTYPE_NONE, CELLTYPE_VALUE etc in global.hxx but none related to date or time.
