Creating a Customized Template File
Once you've set the options for all databases and the current database, you might want to use the database as a template for all new databases you create. You can specify the database to use as the template for all new databases you create by saving it as \Program Files\Microsoft Office\Templates\1033\Access\Blank.accdb. This location is called the System Template Folder.
Alternatively, you can save it under Windows XP as \Documents and Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Templates\Blank.accdb or under Windows Vista as \Users\UserName\Documents.
