hi everybody,

is it possible to have a shortcut to a template? i mean instead of going everytime to FILE>NEW and choose a template, you just have it somewhere on the toolbar as a button for example.
thanks.
 

Excel Facts

Which came first: VisiCalc or Lotus 1-2-3?
Dan Bricklin and Bob Frankston debuted VisiCalc in 1979 as a Visible Calculator. Lotus 1-2-3 debuted in the early 1980's, from Mitch Kapor.
You could either add a button to the MS Office ShortCut Bar, or in Excel you could record a macro to open your template and assign the macro to a toolbar button.

This must be easy to find in the Windows help file, but anyway :-

Right-click on the ShortCut bar
Select Customize>Buttons>AddFile and select the file you want to add.
