Blank Sudoku Template
I would like a Sudoku template that is completely blank (basically a create-your-own Sudoku puzzle template). The template would allow me to type numbers (1-9) where I want.
With the information you provided, I THINK I got it.
Here's what it sounds like you're asking for.
By the way, if you don't fill in the book afterward, in a year, it would be like a whole new book... free too.
(I'm hoping commenters can attach files somewhere along the way here. If not, this will look fairly stupid. If that happens, just open a blank spreadsheet, change your View to "Page Layout" so you can work with inches, set row and columns, nine that is, to, say, 0.5". The select the upper left 3x3 and format borders using the default line and clicking the "Inside" button in the dialogue, then the really heavy black border and clicking the "Outside" button in the dialogue. Then copy that 3x3 block and paste to the middle and right 3x3's to its right, then copy the whole 3x9 upper tier and paste to the middle and bottom 3x9 tiers and you are set. The sheet has nothing but formatting so when finished, you can just highlight (select) the whole thing and clear it to be ready for the next one.)
Yes, just a bunch of borders on a blank 9x9 grid. Let me explain why.
I have a Sudoku puzzle book and I keep making mistakes. Instead of constantly erasing (which is what I’m currently doing), it would be nice if I could mimic what the puzzle creator did and then fill in the blanks.
Basically, I would:
1. Start with a blank Sudoku grid
2. Type the numbers that are shown in my book into the corresponding spaces in the blank grid
3. Use the grid I created to figure out where the remaining numbers go
a. This way, I could fix my mistakes more easily
4. Fill in the blanks in the book
Does that make sense?

You mean just a bunch of borders on a blank 9 × 9 grid? Or do you mean that it should create a Sudoku puzzle for you? Remember that it is possible to create an unsolvable Sudoku puzzle, so you probably don't want to type the numbers in yourself. It's probably better if you just find a Sudoku puzzle generator on the Internet.
