How to update default cell alignment

In cell format, the default for vertical alignment is always Bottom. How can
I change this to Top, when using Excel 2003?

You can do this for all New workbooks by creating a default template that
Excel would use.

Open a new workbook.

Select all sheets. Select all cells.

Format>Cells alignmen tas you wish.

De-select all cells. Ungroup the sheets

File>Save As Type: scroll down to Excel Template(*.XLT) and select. Name
your workbook "BOOK"(no quotes). Excel will add the .XLT to save as
BOOK.XLT.

Store this workbook in the XLSTART folder usually located at........

C:\Documents and Settings\username\Application Data\Microsoft\Excel\XLSTART

This will be the default workbook for File>New or the Toolbar button
File>New or CTRL + n

WARNING................Do not use File>New...Blank Workbook or you will get
the Excel default workbook.

NOTE: Existing workbooks are not affected by these settings.

You can also open a new workbook and delete all but one sheet. Customize as
you wish then save this as SHEET.XLT in XLSTART folder also. It now becomes
the default Insert>Sheet.

More can be found on this in Help under "templates"(no quotes).
