It depends,

normally a custom toolbar is saved in a file Excel.xlb (somewhere in your user profile)

If you follow the steps in

http://www.ozgrid.com/Excel/custom-toolbar.htm

you will be able to attach the toolbar to your workbook.

Something I wrote for myself once upon a time...

Copying Custom Toolbar Icons
If you've created these custom button icons using the Button Editor then I believe they get saved to a file named excelXX.xlb (as well as any other customizations you've made to your excel toolbars) that should be located in the folders below based on your OS:

For Windows 2000, XP they can be found in:
C:\Documents and Settings\(user ID)\Application Data\Microsoft\Excel

Just copy the file to the same location on another computer.
