Where does customui go for Word 2010

In Access 2010 I can customize the ribbon and backstage by placing the xml in a table called USysRibbons. Where do I put similar xml for Word 2010? I can't seem to find a mechanism for doing this in Word 2010?

For customizing the ribbon itself (not the colors, etc.) you can do so by going to the Office Button > Word > Options > Customize Ribbon.  That will allow you to change the tab order, group order, create custom tabs, and create groups in the tabs that you create.

You can change the skin in Word 2010 to one of the available presets: Blue, Black, or Silver (Office Button > Options > General > Choose color scheme) - but know that any change you make will affect all Office applications.  So if you change to the black skin - all of your MS Office apps will have a black skin (Excel, Outlook, etc.)

For customizing the skins or creating new ones, I am unaware of any current options.

That's not what I'm looking for. There has to be some place for me the actually create an xml file for ribbons and backstage views.

It's so simple in Access, but not at all obvious in Word. A .docx file is actually a .zip file in disguise. if you change the extension from .docx to .zip you'll be able to see all the files and all the ribbon stuff. It's been a long time since I messed with it, so I can't tell you much more. I solved my one time need. I'm an Access developer and so that's where I spend all my time. Hope this helps a bit and gets you started.
