    Sorry I don't see much discussion going on at Office community so pardon me
    for posting it here. I downloaded a template from office download center for
    excel.
    I saved the template in "c: program files>Microsoft Office>templates>1033"
    where other templates are. I tried opening it from excel by
    "File>New>template on my computer.." but don't see my newly added one. Please
    help.

    That's because MS is shutting down these newsgroups.

    I renamed it and in properties, it has excel as the default program set to
    open it. It does open and works well when I open it from my computer>etc....
    I want to see it in the list of other templates in excel. and the location
    of other templates is the same as the one i have saved my new one in.

    Yes but it won't show as a template unless it ends in .xlt as you will find
    if you right click on the other templates (Actually named links to the real
    template files) in Excel 'New' and look at their properties sheets. If you
    want to make doubly sure open it and just 'save as' 'template'.

    Stop using Microsoft pretend forums (aka "Communities") that gateway to
    Usenet. Use a newsreader client to connect to an NNTP server or suffer
    with Microsoft's inane web-based Answer forums. The Excel newsgroups
    still exist in Usenet. It's just Microsoft that decided to abandon
    their 4-year experiment in trying to usurp the 30-year old Usenet.

    Here is Microsoft's "spin" on their excuse for leaving Usenet:

    http://www.microsoft.com/communities/newsgroups/default.mspx

    Microsoft had just one NNTP server in the worldwide mesh network of
    Usenet. There are several free or very cheap NNTP servers available and
    all the microsoft.public.* newsgroups are still going to exist in Usenet
    despite Microsoft's leaving. Albasani and Eternal-September are a
    couple of very good free NNTP providers. individual.net is cheap at $16
    USD/year and operated at the Berlin University. Your own ISP might
    still provide newsgroups access although many ISPs have dropped this
    service (it generated no revenue, cost them to operate or provide the
    service, and they lost no customers by removing this service).
