Creating Default Formatting for Workbooks and Worksheets in Excel

When you first open Excel, you are presented with a blank workbook. This workbook has one worksheet, which is where you enter your data. You can add more worksheets to the workbook if you need to.

If you want to create a default format for all new workbooks and worksheets, you can do so by creating a template. A template is a file that contains all the formatting and layout options that you want to use in your workbooks and worksheets. When you create a new workbook or worksheet, you can choose to use the template, and all of the formatting and layout will be applied automatically.

To create a template, open a new workbook and make all of the changes to the formatting and layout that you want. Then, go to File > Save As. In the Save As dialog box, select Excel Template from the Save as type drop-down list. Enter a name for the template in the File name text box, and then click Save. From now on, whenever you create a new workbook or worksheet, you can choose to use this template.
