I have a Visual Studio project in vb that has many forms. I currently have a treeview control which I use as a kind of switchboard, where the end user clicks a node and it opens a form. Each form is part of the project. Now, we have an Excel template that resides on a shared network folder that I would like the end user to be able to open the Excel template when they click a node or button (I guess for now I'll have them click a button and figure out how to do it from the tree node later).
Should I include the Excel template in my project or should I leave it on the shared network folder and just have my project open it directly from it's shared network folder location?
If I should include the Excel template in my project, how do I do that?
Thank you in advance.
