First, go to the developer tab and click the record macro. Second, right click on the bottom tab and make a copy of the original template. Then, stop recording the macro.

Next, click on insert and insert any symbol you want to assign the macro. ( People usually insert a button in here.)

After you assigned the macro, the code will work.

When every time you click on the button, the macro will work and make a copy of the template.
