I have saved a .dotm and placed it in my word Autostart folder.
I want to make this file as a button on the QAT but I dont see how to do this.
I see the document.dotm as an available macro but I want it as a button in QAT.

How can I do this?

    Open Word.
    Create Macro to open Template.
    Save over Normal.Dot
    Assign Macro to QAT.

    (Warning.  Adding things to QAT will follow the file)...

    OK I did know of the little arrow.  I checked the hyperlink.  It says to navigate to "macro" under Choose commands.  I do not see my macro there.  I do however see the macro when I click View<Macros    (refer to pic with red arrow).  

    What do you think now?
