    Doc created from .xlt jumps to 7MB on one PC only (2000/SR2)

    I have a few PCs using a .xlt Excel template. On just one PC, the .xlt Excel spreadsheet template increases in size from 300ish KB to 7 or 8 MB just by opening it and saving as a normal spreadsheet. On the other PCs the new normal spreadsheet is a regular size.

    Any ideas?

    Try opening Excel without any addins or hidden workbooks:

    Start, Run,
    "C:Program FilesMicrosoft OfficeOfficeExcel.exe" /automation

    Then try opening a workbook using the template and saving. If it does not happen then, then it is something in an addin or hidden workbook.

    I'm such a bozo! I had the file save as type to compatible with old versions of Excel. When I set it to the normal Excel .xls format it saved at 110KB.

    Sorry to have wasted anyone's time.
