From now on when you start Excel your new blank default work book will be the one you have just created. Should you need to create a work book with the original default work book then hit Office>New and select Blank Work book. You can really make the default template your own add a company logo and colors without any extra effort by creating a new default template you can work smarter and faster but keep that professional edge. Templates are spreadsheets that are pre-formatted with text colors and/or formulas. They can be used to save you time and effort. Sometimes you are using a workbook as a template and don t even realize it.
There are plenty available on the internet however you need to make your choice as to what kind you should choose for your wants and needs. The templates can come in various forms and formats. Sometimes these formats are available in blogs on the internet. It is not necessary that you have to follow these formats word to word. You can add on your own necessary requirements to these samples as long as you are following a general format. Following a general format has many advantages. This can only happen if you are following a general format. There are many such formats that are available on the internet. You should pick one that suites you the best.
Issue 1: Protect the Worksheet and Cells The first issue when creating a template is to ensure that your worksheet and cells are protected. For example the cells you want people to put data into should not have protection applied and the headlines you need to use to explain where to put the data into should in fact be protected. Further to this in Microsoft Excel 2003 you can set that cells that are protected cannot be selected and I recommend that all headline areas are set in this way.. Issue 2: Lock the Workbook against Structural Changes There are different levels of security in Microsoft Excel such as security at the cell level worksheet level and workbook level.
