    Hyperlink to Excel Template (Excel 2003)

    Hi
    I am trying to hyperlink to a variety of templates from an Excel sheet.
    My problem is that the Hyperlink opens the template as *.xlt not as a new document e.g. Book1
    I found a work around for Word by Hyperlinking to a shortcut that points to the template but this doesn't work for Excel.
    Is there a work around for this behaviour in Excel ?

    Instead of a hyperlink, use some VBA code, e.g. a command button that executes code like this:

    Sub ButtonClick()
    Workbooks.Add "C:TemplatesMyTemplate.xlt"
    End Sub
