    Excel/Office Templates (2000)

    Hoping somebody can tell me where I can download these from. I been jumping all over the MS site, but can only find "previews", not downloads. I'm mainly interested in Excel offerings (loan amortization etc.) but would be interested in taking a look at everything on offer.

    thanks

    Have a look at Microsoft's Template Gallery . Whilst you are previewing the templates, there is a hyperlink to actually download the template so that you can Edit it in Excel, Word etc. You can then just save the template to you preferred folder.

    Or right click on a link to a template and select Save Target As ....

    Aren't these part of the office installation? (they may have to be selected separately when installing).

    Re: Excel/Office Templates (2000)

    Hmmm... trouble is

    1. My CD reader is not working, so can't use the installation disk.

    2. When I click a link from the template gallery (javascript, not a URL) I'm taken to the preview and asked if I want to install & run "Microsoft Office Tools on the Web Control". For some reason, this doesn't do its thing, and I'm taken to a "non-functional" preview, with no clickable download links - just another JS to "Edit in Microsoft Excel", which does nothing.

    Is there a plain, old-fashioned URL out there from which I can simply download?

    I just tried going to the Microsoft Template Gallery and previewed a Loan Calculator template.
    There are two 'Edit in Excel' buttons which dump the template straight into Excel for me, from
    where I can use File, Save As.
    I presume your problem may be the failure of the "Microsoft Office Tools on the Web Control".

    This certainly seems to be the problem. Whatever "installed" doesn't seem to have worked. I can get to a preview of sorts, but the "Edit in Microsoft Excel" control does nothing. I might try on another machine, but I wish MS had thought about a simple button to just straight-out download these things - short & sweet & simple!
