Are you using the templates that originally came with Works, or additional ones you downloaded? If the latter, this may help you:

"When you’ve downloaded the template, you will need to add it to your Works Task Launcher lists. To do this, open the file in the Works application it was created in, for example, XLR files are spreadsheets, DOC are Word, WPS are Works word processor, and WDB are database files. When the file is open, save it as a template. In the Works spreadsheet, database and word processor you do this by choosing File, Save As and click the Template button. Type a name for your template in the box (make it descriptive of what the template does) and click OK."

The link above also outlines how to use templates in general, as does this somewhat easier to understand article:


Hopefully this will answer your question, but if not, please reply with a more detailed question.
