Anyone know where the default template location for Excel 2010 is (why is it so difficult to find!)
I have created a custom template and want it to appear in the users template list

It appears to be common with Word (what an idea)

>Open a document in Word...........yes, Word........... then go to
>Tools>Options>File Locations>User Templates>Modify.
>
>This location is common with Excel.

It also depends on the operating system. In Windows XP, the default path for the 2010 templates is

C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Application Data\Microsoft\Templates

This may be different in Vista or Windows 7

In Word 2010 you find the file locations via

File - Options - Advanced - General section (almost at the bottom) - File locations button. This will pop up the list of file locations and you can click Modify to change it.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

I'm using Win7 and Office2010 - it does indeed appear that the location of ALL templates is determined by the setting in WORD as @teylyn suggests - how intuitive !!

it was calacuccia who pointed out that the template location for Excel is set in Word.

I just showed the 2010 way of accessing the Modify dialog.
