  1. “After reading the rest of the tips I found where it tells you how to merge styels from another workbook.

    What I’ve done is create a workbook named “”Styles”” and have created all the styels I want to use. Now it is simply a matter of opening that workbook and mergeing it into the one I’m working on to make the styles available in the new workbook.”

  2. “Hi Dave,

    Good idea. I am going to do the same thing, except that I wil use my personal.xls file.

    If you don’t already use one of those, you might want to read up to see if that will enhance your idea.

    Thanks for the tip,

    Alan.”
