Templates for Microsoft Excel let you create spreadsheets quickly. Use Excel templates to also ensure a consistent design throughout.
In Excel 2010, there are many templates that can save you a lot of time. A template is a predesigned spreadsheet you can use to create new spreadsheets with the same formatting and predefined formulas.
