Hi all,


       I am having a template file which has only one sheet. I am using the template as the base and try to generate more than 90 sheets for 90 different countries. But the problem i am facing right now is, if i am using that template file,

I can only see the design in the first sheet, but the rest of the tabs shows only the value, but there is no design. I've tried the same design in another sheet in the template , then in the output, i am getting two sheets designed. Is there anyway to make it more dynamic, means i want to have only one sheet design template which should apply to all the tabs in the output excel file. 


Please help me asap


Thanks & Regards

Load the template and use the worksheet copy() method (or clone) remembering to retitle each copied/cloned worksheet
