Set Excel 2008 default zoom level via AppleScript
Authored by: ede on Aug 06, '08 01:05:05PM

Another way of doing this is to modify the startup template. Get everything just like you like it (zoom, window positions, etc.), then Save As...
1. Format: "Excel Template (.xltx)"
2. Name: "Workbook" with no quotes and no extension. If Excel automatically adds the extension .xltx in the "Save As" dialog, delete the extension. This is critical!
3. Location: in the Excel Startup folder, located by default at HD:Applications:Microsoft Office 2008:Office:Startup:Excel

Of course this won't affect existing spreadsheets, but it can save time when creating new ones.
