Excel 2007 # of rows

When creating a new Excel workbook in 2007, only 65536 rows are shown. I
tried searching for all files with xlt or xltx and did not see a default new
workbook template to be modified, added, or deleted. The only templates I
found were the Installed Templates.

How can I get it to create new workbooks with all of the 1 million + rows?

Thanks

Save it as a .xlsx file (Excel Workbook).

If my comments have helped please hit Yes.

Thanks.

My problem is that I have a 3rd party program that outputs data into an Excel
workbook, but the program requires more than 65,000 rows for the data. Since
the workbook creation is defaulting to 65,000 rows, the program can't place
all of the information in the file and there is no way to stop it, re-save
the workbook in the new format, and then let the program continue.

So I have to have the default new workbook creation be the million plus rows.

Can't you create the Workbook with a million rows in it as I have suggested
and then run the data into it from there?

No. The only option I have with the program is the file output location. It
creates the Excel output file. And when it creates the output file, it uses
the default which is only 65536. It works fine for my co-worker whose Excel
defaults to a million plus rows, but it won't work on mine.

At one point in time, I had an older version of Excel. My co-worker didn't.
So I think somehow it is still using an older version default even though
that version was uninstalled.

I think OP believes correctly that the default workbook for 2007 should
already have worksheets with 1000000 plus rows.

Why is it only 65536?

One thing I can think of is there could be a BOOK.xlt left over in XLSTART
folder as a remnant from Excel 2003.

But OP has stated that was investigated.

Perhaps the third-party app that does the output is hard-wired to Excel 2003
version?

What is the third-party app and from what/where does it output?

We have found the problem. If you set the default Save format under Options
to Excel 97-2003, any newly created workbooks will be limited to the 65536
rows. I changed the default Save format to xlsx and now it creates new
workbooks in the new format with 1 million+ rows.

It makes sense, but I didn't associate the Save default with the workbook
creation.

Thanks to everyone for the assistance.
