I have created a custom Word 2007 Template (.dotm file) with a macro in there that will ask for a name and save the file to a network location.  I would like to:
a. Add a toolbar button that creates a new document with this template (this will be called the 'New' button)
b. Add a toolbar button that calls this macro (this will be called the 'Save' button)
c. Distribute this template WITH the toolbar buttons such that if I give this template to somebody and they put it in some folder (which one?) then they should get those 2 toolbar buttons and they should work for them.

Remember, this is Word 2007. I already found some articles on how to do this in older versions, but nothing for 2007.

Thanks.
