You can export the module that contains the macro to a file and then import the file as a module into your current application.

Actually, it is probably best to use the organiser: Tools>Macro>Macros..., Organizer... button

Create a new template by saving a blank document as a template.  In Organizer, open it and the Normal template and move the code module that contains the macro and the toolbar with the button to the new template.

On the second PC, you could do the same thing with the new template, or you could put it in the Word startup folder. Then it will become a global template and the macro and toolbar will become available.

is there a way i can put the 3 custom macros on the network and have everyone share them?

You can do that by putting the three custom macros in a template on the network, then placing a shortcut to that template in the Startup folder of Word on each machine. Alternatively, you can copy the template itself to the Startup folder of each machine each time the user logs into the network (use the network postlog routine). That allows you to update the network copy of the file when users are in Word (otherwise you might have problems updating the template because it's "in use").
