I have run server side trace, now I need to edit my trace, I tried with old *.trc file open and try to script them, but that option doesn't visible to me. I don't want to build thsi from scratch as it involved very complex setting.

Did you go to the Properties and checked whether you could modify it and get the desired result out of it.

in other words you start with a blank template, modify all your columns/filters to suit and then script that out to create a sql file that can create this template at a later date when required

Not as far as I know. You add columns and filters then save that as a template rather than try to create a template from a previosly created trc file. But as I say, only as far as I know. If there is a trick then I haven't seen ot
