How Can I Create a Custom Tab in the Ribbon and Create a Drop Down Menu to Open Document Templates?

Medium Priority
Last Modified: 2012-06-27
Hello Experts,

I need to create a custom top level tab in the Word 2007 ribbon.
I would like it named something like "CompanyDocs".
I have about 50 or so business document templates that I would like group and list under this ribbon.
Can you offer me some advice to get started? I would really appreciate it.
If you can offer a simple "Hello World" example, I would appreciate it even more. =)
I assume I would have to create some sort of dotm file and put it in my Word Startup folder but need help.
