How do I use a template in Excel?

Useful templates are often better suited for specific purposes than a blank sheet. Creating a workbook from scratch can be very time-consuming, depending on its complexity. Templates contain a certain look, structure and are solving a certain problem. After entering your own data, appropriate formulas and results are presented. Most templates can be customized to meet individual needs.
