Excel - Applying Excel Templates

Asked By gkat on 17-Oct-07 12:51 PM
I have a 'csv' file that contains numbers with preceding zeroes.  When I open
the file up, the zeroes are eliminated.  I created a simple template that
will format all cells in the worksheet to be 'text'.  How do I apply this
template to the 'csv' file?  When I have the template open, then import the
'csv' file, the zeroes are still being eliminated.  I noticed something about
the data range, but I'm not sure how to set that.
