how do we get 2003 .xlb toolbars and custom macros to show in 07

I have custom macros that are saved in an .xls file under the XLStart/ folder
in Excel 2003. These macros are referenced by an Excel11.xlb file that holds
the toolbars. All of these automatically open because they are under the
XLStart/ folder. How do I get them into Excel 2007 so they will open
automatically and how can I get the custom toolbar file to show up.

I would drop the toolbar file and create that toolbar on the fly when excel
opens the .xls file. It'll make things much easier.

Here's how I do it when I want a toolbar:

In xl2007, those toolbars and menu modifications will show up under the addins.

If you want to learn about modifying the ribbon, you can start at Ron de Bruin's
site:

addin)
or

And Bob Phillips shows a way to use a wrapper so that it can work in both xl2003
and xl2007.
