Hi

Does anyone know how I can get excel to open this file as a standard when I select a 'New' workbook?

I want the extended rows and columns associated with this format

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).

I'm using Excel 2010 and if I do New then Save As, .xlsx is the default format.

What version of Excel are you using?

Fisher1975,

Try Excel Options >> Save >> Save Workbooks >> Save workbooks in this format:

and select your required default from the topdown list.

Hope that helps.

***Edit Sorry, you are saying open not save!! ***

Snakehips,

Worry not, I never knew that you could change the default SaveAs filetype - respect!
