You need to ensure you search in hidden and system folders.
On my machine (XP) it is:
C:\Documents and Settings\username\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\OFFICE

C:\Users\Owner\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Office\Excel.officeUI is it. by further experimentation i found that it can be exported [and imported] from the QAT customization form.

FYI, if you are exporting the file (right click QAT, Customize QAT, Import/Export) it can be saved anywhere you like.  I'm assuming that's what you meant by your last post.  It saves all your UI changes, including your Ribbon customizations.  It is the same for all 2010 Office applications, where the default name changes from Excel Customizations, or Word Customizations, etc.
