Is it possible to import a ribbon customization file without loosing my existing ribbon customizations in my word 2010 ? Presently, when I import a file, it erases all of my current customizations.

Or do I have to export the 2 ribbons from each Word 2010 pc, somehow arrange to properly "merge" the 2 xml files , and then import back the combined xml ? Any simpler way ?

Thanks

You could create a global template that loads when Word loads and import one of the ribbons into that template.  Save the template into the Word startup directory and you should be all set
