word  toolbar & macro migration issues 2003 to 2007

I had a word 2003 custom toolbar running some macros, and I upgraded to office 2007.

now if I go and open the old (2003) normal.dot file an "Add-Ins" tab is added to the default ones,
inside it, it has a "group" with a bottom caption saying "Custom Toolbars" and it has the buttons from my old toolbar.

I have 2 issues:
1) I want this toolbar to be available as part of the new normal.dotm (so that I will not need to open the old normal.dot) - I was able to open the vba editor and copy the macros from normal.dot to normal.dotm but I cant find how to move the toolbar itself.
2) the macro for one of my buttons has a CreateObject statement that failes with the error:
"Run-time error '-2147220992 (80040200)':
 Failed to invoke proccess CreateProcess() API failed."

is this some new security issue ? dop I need to give some specific permissions for createObject to be able to run ?

Thanks,
SnowFlake

o.k. - resolved the second issue by myself - disabling the User Account Control (run msconfig.exe, tools tab and Launch "Disable UAC") and rebooting resolved this issue.

I still need help with migrating the toolbar.

o.k.
I have almost everything I wanted from this link and the links the follow inside that tutorial.
one minor last detail :
Is there a way to extract the manually created icons from my previous normal.dot ? or should I do screen captures or recreate the images ?

If you still have 2003 available to you then, you can copy the images. Or you might want to create screen captures using a program like SnagIt. http://www.techsmith.com/screen-capture.asp they have a fully functional 30 trial that you can download and use.

When you are in Word 2003, and you are in the Customize toolbar area, then you can right click and choose to Copy the image. If you don't have Word 2007 and Word 2003 on the same machine, then paste the image into Paint and save them to use in Word 2007.
