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); “-“_)




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
