[OT] OpenOffice calc question

My company's product uses dates in yyyymmdd format, but can import csv
files directly from any spreadsheet. If I import a csv containing
yyyymmdd, OO calc correctly displays the date, but if I want to modify
the spreadsheet (mainly financial curves), it outputs the date in the
mmddyyyy or mmddyy in the resultant csv. Does anyone know how I can
tell OO to output dates in the desired format preferably without
changing the entire locale. Of course, the csv can be edited with emacs
(or lesser capable editors like vi :-).=20
