I have an Excel 2010 template (OSI.xltm) with macros that I used to create a new workbook (NewFile.xlsm). I then went to "save as" type xltm but the drop down types only has xlsm. What am I doing wrong?

Figured it out. There was some code (I'm not sure where it came from) that prevented saving the file as anything other than xlsm.
