Issue for DATEVALUE function



Excel will return “12/31/2019” for both =DATEVALUE(“Dec 31”) and =DATEVALUE(“31 Dec”), while Aspose Cells Java will return “01/12/1931”.

Workbook wb = new Workbook();
Worksheet ws = wb.getWorksheets().get(0);
System.out.println(ws.calculateFormula("=DATEVALUE(“31 Dec”)"));
System.out.println(ws.calculateFormula("=DATEVALUE(“Dec 31”)"));

Could you please help?
