I have set org-odt-preferred-output-format to docx, which works fine.
How can I have the intermediate odt-file removed automatically after
the docx-file is created?

Many thanks in advance for any answer

Rainer

Here's one (lightly tested) option:

    (advice-add :after #'org-odt-convert
                (lambda (&optional in-file &rest _)
                  (when in-file
                    (delete-file in-file)))
                '((name . "org-odt-convert--delete-odt")))

Hi Rainer,

org-odt-convert is defined in ox-odt, so if that library isn't loaded
yet, you'll need to explicitly load it before that snippet:

    (require 'ox-odt)

Or you could use eval-after-load, as in the next snippet.

Anywhere in your Emacs customization should do.  If you wanted to avoid
loading ox-odt at startup, you do something like this:

    (eval-after-load 'ox-odt
      '(advice-add 'org-odt-convert :after
                   (lambda (&optional in-file &rest _)
                     (when in-file
                       (delete-file in-file)))
                   '((name . "org-odt-convert--delete-in-file"))))

> Thank you very much again,

Happy to help, but in the future please keep your replies on list.  That
(1) allows others to help and give feedback and (2) may help other
readers that had the same question as you.
