    Default Template in Excel 2003

    I'm trying to find the Default template that starts up every time you open
    excel. However, I have not been able to locate it. Is there a default
    template for excel like there is in Word (normal.dot)

    Thank you,

    Excel doesn't necessarily have a default template. However, if
    you create a template named Book.xlt and place it in your XLStart
    folder (typically C:\Program Files\Microsoft
    Office\Office\XLStart), new workbooks will be created with this
    template.

    There is no equivalent of Word's normal.dot, you can open a new workbook,
    format it to your liking and save as book.xlt and it will be the new default
    (save it in the xlstart folder), you can also do the same for sheets naming
    them sheet.xlt (just in case if you add sheets they will have same format)
