TEMPLATE ANNOYANCES

CREATE A WORKBOOK TEMPLATE

The Annoyance:

I create worksheets for many different projects, but they all have the same basic layout (shown in Figure 2-4) and formulas. I'd like to save the general layout of the workbook (one worksheet for each month, the color scheme, the formulas, etc.) so that I don't have to go through the rigmarole of saving the base workbook under a new name. It gets even worse when I press Ctrl-S as a reflex after I delete the data but before I save the workbook under its new name. Isn't there some way to create a template I can call up like the ones that come with Excel?

Figure 2-4. This could be a template—but how do you call it up when you need it?
