I need to add a template that is going to be created to a custom tab in the ribbon in MS Word. MS seems to have made this for add-ins only or commands.  Is this possible to do as a template or do I have to use another way?

Thanks,

Dan

You can add custom buttons to the quick access toolbar in 2007 and the ribbon in 2010. You can have these buttons call a macro that opens a template. This is the only easy way to do it without making an add-in.
Put the macro in Normal.dot and just have it open the template. If you need more direction, let me know.
In 2003, you could do it much more easily, but MS doesn't always leave in the features we want when the upgrade.
