Is there a way to create an icon or text that resides in a Custom command bar that will execute a procedure that is in the code of a document template?  Can I have that code reside in the template code (like in a Module) or does it have to be in the Normal document code?

 To assign a macro to an icon on a command bar:
  1. Open the View...Toolbars...Customize menu item    
  2. Go to the Commands tab, then select Macros from the pane on the left    
  3. Select the document that contains your macro in the Save In dropdown at the bottom    
  4. Find your macro in the pane on the right    
  5. Drag it up to a toolbar    
  6. Right-click the text and choose Button and Text if you want an icon & text. Choose Default Style if you want just the icon.    
  7. Right-click the icon and choose Change Button Image if you want to pick the icon
