We are using Windows XP, SP3, LibreOffice

We have created a Calc spreadsheet and want to show the time in the header. When we print the sheet, the time shows military time. Is there a way to change that to show 12 hour time? I know that we would have to enter am or pm if needed.

Not that I know of - but there may be a workaround. You can arrange for a row or rows of a Calc spreadsheet to be repeated on every page of the printout.

o In a suitable cell in a low-numbered row, enter =NOW()
o Format that cell suitably - perhaps as H:MM AM/PM
o Go to Format | Print Ranges > | Edit... .
o Under "Rows to repeat", click the Shrink button at the right.
o Click a cell in the required row or drag across cells in the required rows.
o Click the Shrink button again and then click OK.

You will need to update the time before you print on each occasion. To do this, go to Tools | Cell Contents > | Recalculate (or just press F9).

I trust this helps.
