How can I save changes to the default sheet for the Insert Sheet command? I get my modifications in Book1, Sheet1 but they do not hold for newly inserted sheets.

Create your sheet template and remove other sheets from your workbook.

Save the workbook:

  • File name "Sheet"
  • File type "Excel Template (*.xltx)"
  • Location "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office14\XLSTART"

The next time you start Excel, this is used as your default new sheet template.
