Permanently change Excel 2003 Colors to company standards

The company has created a "standard" color palette.  Now, on individual workbooks, if I have the workbook with the new palete open and the create or open another workbook, I can import this color palete and it is fine.  However, when I close the workbooks and open a new workbook, the color palate is not the new one - how can I get the new one to be the standard color pallete for all workbooks?

I think you will need to put this into a template then open the template any time you need the company colors (which I guess it always).

After you save the file as a template, you can copy a shortcut from the saved location to your desktop to launch this any time you need it.
Create a new workbook with your desired colour palette, and save it as a template file called Book.XLT in XLSTART

Thank you both.  However, I want this to be universally  applied with the XLSTARTUP and that is the route I am taking with the template.
