Excel 2010 Template and RIbbonX Initiated Macro

I have cretaed an Excel 2010 macro-enabled template, The template has a RIbbonX custom tab/
group/button created using the std backstage Options\Customize Ribbon. The custom button is
inserted from the Customize Ribbon Macros which shows the macros resident in the template
file. The problem is that when an instacne of the file is created from the macro-enabled template
and the user clicks the custom button to run the macro, Excel opens the original template file and
runs th macro from the original template. Obviously the custom buton is referencing the original
template, but I would expect MS to properly call VBA from an instance of a template. ANy help here
would be greatly appreciated. I want to use the RIbbonX to cll the macro, both for ease of use
on the part of the target end users and for a more professional "polish". Thx!

I suspect the XML in your template has a full path to the template file in it. You would need to use the CustomUI editor to alter the XML in the file so that it does not include a file path.
