    Template files (Excel 2000)

    I've created a series of Invoices using the standard template. These have been saved as .xls files. When I update information on one of these Excel files I receive a message telling me: "Template File - Save to Database. The contents of this workbook have not been saved as a record in the database. Create new record or Continue without updating." These are .xls files, not .xlt. Why is it still being treated as a template file and what do I need to change so I can update the forms?

    Re: Template files (Excel 2000)

    It is possible for a termplate file to have an xls extension if it was given such when being saved. What might have happened was that a template file was opened to create a document based on it and then saved as an xls file. The proper procedure is to use File, New, and select the template on which you require the new workbook to be based.

    All your template files, other than those that are required at startup, should be stored in your Templates folder.
