Templates to control a group of worksheets

Hi everyone. 
I am trying to develop a small home project but as it 
develops, I keep wanting to make changes to it, and then 
have to go through and change each of the worksheets. 
What is the best way of establishing some kind of 
template so that I can make alterations to the 'master' 
copy which will be reflected in the other worksheets, but 
not lose any data in these. This problem has been 
bothering me for ages. Big respect to anyone who can help 
me fix it!

It depends on what sort of changes you are making. 

If you are changing the formatting or layout of your sheets and they
all look the same (ie rows and columns in the same place) then you can
select all the sheets and changes you make will be effected on all

Select Sheets 1, 2, 3.  Select Col A, make it Bold and you will have
made Col A bold in each sheet.  It works for inserting/deleting
rows/columns etc. as well.

Hope this helps.

publisher templates #3
I have read the posting from Liz asking for a way to creat half fold cards in Publisher. After reading the suggestions via further postings, I wish Microsoft would explain why they chose to remove the 3rd option for a half fold card from its' more recent edition. It was SO much easier and handier to click the 3rd option of page setup to create a half fold card. I have the Avery textured half-fold cards and I used them with the earlier verson of Publisher.

Move worksheet to new book

blank postcard template 4 x 6
Hi, I have a postcard that I made in MS Publisher that is 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 in size. Obviously I can't use a .23 cent stamp on this item. I was interested in modifying my larger postercard and reducing it to a 4 x 6 template size so I can save on postal expenses. I couldn't find a blank template! I've purchased card stock and am ready to figure out a way to convert the larger size to (4) 4x6 smaller postcards printed on a full sheet 8 1/2 x 11. I'll then have them cut to size. So.. is there a easy to use template out there and how do I convert (shrink) my current postc...
