About Excel Template


Started as a hobby site in 2006, ExcelTemplate.net grew to be one of the most popular excel template resources. Over the years, we have added hundreds of excel templates to this site. They were not always free. In 2019, we changed that.

Knowledge is power but sharing is even more powerful.

When it comes to the sharing of knowledge, some people hoard knowledge, and some share it. We wanted to be the people who share.

As of today, every single template you find on ExcelTemplate.net is free. These templates are created by ExcelTemplate.net crew and by people from all over the world who wanted to share their knowledge (do you have a template you’d like to publish on our site? Get in touch!)

What is ExcelTemplate.net?

ExcelTemplate.net is a library of free excel templates that solve common problems in private life and business, improve productivity, and save time.

ExcelTemplate.net offers more than 600 spreadsheets that can help you with anything from feeding a baby to doing your taxes. Templates are organized in categories and themes. Each template comes with step-by-step instructions to make it easier to use and customize the template. You are welcome to make changes to the templates and to create your own versions.

FAQ

What Excel version do I need to use your templates?

Based on our experience, the templates will work properly in Excel 97 – 2007. Starting 2010, most of the templates are created using Excel 2010 version. They are will work properly in Excel 2007 and later versions. It really all depends on a template. Some simple templates will work fine in any version, and some complex templates will require latest Excel version.

Why can’t I download the file?

Check your browser settings. Does it allow pop-ups? You can also try downloading from another browser.

How can I download your templates?

All the links to download templates are on their respective download pages. Just search for a download icon, or for the hyperlink with words “here” or “free” or “yes”. You need to click those hyperlinks to start downloading file to your computer.

Why the Excel function not working properly?

Many of our Excel templates require a minimum Excel 2007 version running (Windows). This means that if you are using another Excel version or OS, there could be some incompatibility where some functions are not supported. Some common issues we’ve seen:

  • for OpenOffice Calc – conditional formatting formulas, a few array functions.
  • for Excel for Mac – button, slider or selection box function.
Why does the template show “#name” in some cells ?

Some templates required the analysis toolpak add-ins to be active. You should activate the analysis toolpak add-ins to make all the Excel formulas working well. You can activate the analysis toolpak by following these steps:

  • Excel 2003 > Menu > Tools > Add-Ins > Tick Analysis Toolpak > Ok
  • Excel 2007 > Menu > Excel Options > Add-Ins > Select Analysis Toolpak > Go > Tick Analysis Toolpak > Ok

You probably need the original Microsoft Office installation if you experience problems with activating the add-ins. If the add-ins are active and you see no change, simply re-open Excel to see the changes.

Why some of the templates have protected sheets and cells?

There are two reasons why we protect some data in the templates. First, by protecting the formula inside the template we want to make sure you do not change it unintentionally. Second, to make it easier to work with the templates. Protected cells and sheets can be easily unprotected – you do not need any password to do that.

Can I pay you to do some Excel projects?

Not this time. We just don’t have the time. We have partnered with Excel Rescue to help you with Excel fixes and custom work. Please visit this page to find out more.
