Customise Excel 2010 ribbon

I have used the ribbon customisation feature of Excel 2010 to add various Excel commands to the ribbon (eg; formatting etc..) and it works well - I am also able to export these customisations, and then import them into Excel on another PC.
Where this does not work is if I create a custom ribbon item which points to a macro (located on my hard drive)

What I would like to do now is to create a very basic Add-In, which will place a menu item on the ribbon which will open a file.
Can anyone provide some sample code for such an Add-In?

I suggest you have a read of Ron's pages here: for the best way to customise the Ribbon.
