When typing a date into Excel, sometimes the wrong era for Japanese reign is displayed in the calendar. Dates in Gregorian format are not affected. Formulas are also not impacted.
This issue is on build 16.0.9330.2087.
Our engineering team is working on a fix. In the meantime, you can uncheck "Input dates according to selected calendar" when using Japanese reign calendar.
