I'd like to create a macro for a user-defined date format (H:MMa/p).  As
examples, 7:00 AM would display as 7:00a and 3:33 PM as 3:33p.  I can
create the format manually, but I understand the LibreOffice format
can't save user-defined formats.  So my thought is to create a macro
which creates the format each time the spreadsheet is opened.  The
user-defined Format Code is for a saved Style.

The macro records without incident and the date format is correct.
However, running the saved macro doesn't change the format.  It seems
this should work.  Thoughts?  The recorded macro is as follows:

8<-- code snip for brevity -->8
Sorry I can't help with your macro, but I like your idea.
An alternative approach I use, is to add my user defined date format to
my Calc default template.


Thank you for responding; I admire your style. I manually changed the
date format of my spreadsheet, saved , then coded it as the default
template. The default template took, but unfortunately, again the
user-defined date format wasn't saved.

Do I understand you can save a user-defined date format in the default
template and it takes? I'm sure a macro would work and I can wade
through the code, but if there's an easier way I'm interested.

I am not sure what you mean by "coded it as the default  template".
If you follow this procedure:
the ".ots" (Calc template) file will include your date format, as would
be the case for any ODF file.
I am sending you (off-list) an example template which has a DD.MM.YYYY
date format, which is not included in standard list of date formats.
Open it and you will find 31.12.1999 at the end of the Format => Date ->
Category format list.
