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. With templates, you don't need to know how to do the math, or even how to write formulas—these are already integrated into the spreadsheet.
In this lesson, you'll learn how to create a new workbook with a template, as well as basic information on how templates work in Excel 2010.
Excel allows you to create a new workbook using a template, which is a predesigned spreadsheet. Several templates are preloaded in Excel, while others are located on Office.com.
