How do you open a template itself with the same .xlt filename for editing? I tried:

Workbooks.Open Filename:= _
"C:WINDOWSApplication DataMicrosoftTemplatesJasper Template.xlt", _
Editable:=True, Format:=xlTemplate

But that Format option wasn't correct...

The Add method below does indeed open the template with a different filename ("Jasper Template1.xls" and workbook format:

Workbooks.Add template:= _
"C:WINDOWSApplication DataMicrosoftTemplatesJasper Template.xlt"

Since I'm still pretty new to this great forum, here's a posting question: When posting, how do you refer/link to a previous post? This one was related to a previous post of mine, which I could have just linked to...

Thanks again!

Format cells as date
Select range and press Ctrl+Shift+3 to format cells as date. (Shift 3 is the # sign which sort of looks like a small calendar).
