using xltm as template


A

Andrew

Hello,
This is not really a programming question, although I'm sure someone in this forum can help. I write a lot of excel programs/macros in templates. When I save the templates as xlt everything works fine. When I go to create a new file from template, my templates (with the xlt) extension show up in the My Templates location. But if I save the template as xltm the templates do not show up. They are in the proper folder C:\Users\Administrator\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Excel. But they don't show up when I try to create a new excel file from template.

Can someone explain how to fix this?

thanks,
Andy

You can save anywhere you like, not needing to use Excel's *suggested*
location. Move your xltm to the Templates folder! Next time, just
navigate to that location in the SaveAs dialog.

Garry,
Thanks, but I don't understand. I thought I was saving to the template folder. When I select File>New>My Templates, excel navigates to the default template folder. I would much prefer not to use the default folder because there is so much chaff to sift through. If I made a new template folder, how would I get excel to navigate to it?
