QB Issue Resolution:
Do you use Word? Word document files are .doc.
The concept is the same for QB templates. They are .des files. You Save them in a folder on this computer, such as under My Documents, you can make a folder for Templates. You cannot use them like this; they are a Proprietary filetype for QB, and I think only Adobe Pro works with them, directly.
Now you can Import it into any QB data file you have open, and keep it safe on the computer, separately. If you only want to Import it to the open QB file, you do not also need to Save it separately.
