Add Excel template to my Visual Studio 2013 project

Hi all.

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.

It's convenient to just reference the network location, provided it is accessible.

To add the template to your project, right-click on the project in the Solution Explorer, Add > Existing Item ...

To distribute the template, add it to the file system in your setup project, if applicable.

Good luck!

Thank you! I'll just reference the network location as you suggested, it's much easier.
