I find appt-display-format in emacs manual with index search.  One hit

In retrospect, yes: you need to have appt loaded.

Further the emacs manual at `39.11 Appointments':

Doesn't contain enough information for me to figure out how to do
this.  I say `for me', that is, it may have plenty enough info for
someone more knowledgeable.
Do what I did: read the source (calendar/appt.el.gz)

You mean what you did after years and years (How mamy? 20 more?)  of
learning and using emacs and lisp?

Yep, 25 years.

Looking thru appt.el at all the hits with appt-display-format does not
help in any way.

Sure it does: Its doc string explains that it can be set to 1 of 3
values (window, echo, nil).  And the appt-display-message function
runs the function bound to appt-disp-window-function when
appt-display-message is set to window.

appt-display-format doesn't even appear in calendar.el

Yes, but `C-h v appt-display TAB TAB' shows appt-display-diary among
*Completions*, and selecting that displays *Help* with a link to
appt.el.  Follow that link, then you can `C-s appt-display-format
C-s C-s C-s ...'.

But thanks for your input.

You're welcome.
