Chapter 3. Work with XML > Use Templates with XML

3.8. Use Templates with XML

So far I've worked with XML maps in workbooks. I did this because that's the way I structured my samples for this book. Actually, XML maps become a lot more useful when stored in Excel templates (.xlt). That way, new workbooks based on those templates automatically contain the XML map and lists you need to display data.

3.8.1. How to do it

To see how this works, create a new workbook and add an XML map, as described previously. Drag items from the XML map onto worksheets as you want them displayed, and save the workbook as a template (.xlt). Figure 3-18 shows a template created for displaying the Order_Map.
