When I create and save a template it does not appear in the Insert box

Same here, I followed the instructions for saving it but only see Worksheet, Chart, MS Excel 4.0 Macro and MS Excel 5.0 Dialog in the Insert dialog

It works for me, but only if I let the template be saved to C:\Users\[my name]\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Templates, which isn't terribly helpful if creating company templates

Simply stated. The new template in the customs file does not show up when the insert sheet tab is selected
