How to Apply a Template to an Existing Chart/Workbook in Excel?
We could have created many types of charts in Excel and customised them to get our output, but the customization of charts could be a time-consuming process. If there is any type of chart that we will be using more frequently and which is not the default type in Excel, we can save the template of it in order to access it very quickly. We can save a template by selecting the existing chart and right-clicking and selecting "Save as template" from the menu box.
