New button does not open the template workbook set up

Excel 2003 I created a template workbook that contains my cells and page 
formatting preferences. When I select New from the File menu I can choose the 
template created, but when I click on the New button the workbook does not 
reflect the same template formatting. Any ideas?

You have to access templates from the file - new menu, not the new icon on 
the standard toobar.

There are two "New" menu items for the "File" menu.

One has an ellipse(...)

The other has no ellipse.

Store your template saved as BOOK.XLT in your XLSTART folder  and use the
"New" item without the ellipse.

The resulting new workbook will be based upon your template.

You can also click on the "New" icon on the standard toolbar and create a new
workbook based upon the BOOK.XLT template.

Opening a unicode CSV file from Excel

When I export data into a unicode CSV file and launch excel with it's path on the command line I get a "This is not a recognized format" message.

Word Won't Open with File Double-click if Word not open

Default properties for new folders

Access to Template's Linked Data Sheets
How do I gain access to the expense statement's linked data sheet? When I make changes to this downloaded template, are these changes automatically linked to the data sheet? I am using Excel 2003.

Setting up second virtual server/connector for smart host for only select users
I currently have one domain and SMTP virtual server defined to handle all mail including internet email. We have our own MX record. Occasionally I have one user who will need to send a mass mailing based on our customer database and this clogs the system. My thought was to define a second SMTP virtual server/connector that would route the email to a smart host (our service provider offers this service). If I could direct this specific user to use this service for the mass mailing, would it help the situation? If yes, how would I go about doing it - have the two SMTP server definitions coe...
