Topic # 113837 29-Jan-2013 16:51 Send private message

Hi There!

I have a customer who wants to be able to add custom formats to her Numbers in Excel 2007. 

Examples would be : 

#,##0_);(#,##0)

#,##0_);(#,##0); “-“_)

#,##0_);[Red](#,##0)

#,##0.00_);(#,##0.00)

#,##0.00_);[Red](#,##0.00)

I can't see a way to add these to her Excel so they are persistent across every sheet she opens. I know you can save it per work book, and to the normal template, but that won't help her if she opens a sheet sent to her by a client. 



Any bright spark able to suggest a reasonable solution?

Have just looked up excel bibles and nothing. So created a user form with a custom format and it works sweet so then you would have to make it available to all by way off an add in I presume. 

I am trying to be an expert in this so let me know if you want further help
