Add Template Macros to Quick Access toolbar in Word 2007

Posted on 2009-02-20

I have a template that I have created multiple macros for Word.  The template gets copied to the users local pc into a folder set as the startup folder for Word.  This way I can modify one file and distribute.   With Word 2007, I cannot find a way to add macros from the template to the QuickAccess toolbar.   Is this possible?

    How are you doing?

    See this:

    Perhaps you could "record this" and see what code is generated, then build your macro accordingly. The "QuickAccess" stuff has been changed around a bit, with the addition of the Ribbon, in-place of the "file, edit, etc" menu's.

    Hope this helps,

    For anyone looking to utilize macros from W2003 and posting buttons to the QuickAccess toolbar, you must first Open the Template file and then go to Word Options to modify the QuickAccess toolbar.  Scroll to macros and you will now see the macros contained within the template, add to the toolbar and assign a picture.
