Workbook & File SaveCopyAs

Hi,
I have a workbook that is being used as a template for data entry and then uses File SaveAsCopy and File SaveAs xlsx macros to concatenate the filename per file naming parameters set by management along with others macros that place the cursor at Cell A1 of each worksheet; create a Word footer and also Clears Data and resets the worksheet. The File SaveAsCopy is being used because the macros need to be available to the end user in the event edits are required. I've added the macros to a Custom Ribbon tab and also added then to the Quick Access Toolbar. Everything works fine EXCEPT that when the end user brings up a file to be edited and uses the macros from either the Custom Ribbon Tab or the Quick Access Toolbar, the Template workbook is opened and any macro operations are against the Template NOT the workbook to be edited. Stranger yet (or at least to me) is that if the end user go to View ==>Macros==>View macros and accesses the same macros, they run against the correct workbook. Obviously, some is missing here but I can't figure it out. The code is below. Any suggestions or help is appreciated.
Code:
Attribute VB_Name = "modMain"
Public strLastPath As String


Option Explicit


'Resets workbook to defaults and clears data
Public Sub ResetWorkbook()
Attribute ResetWorkbook.VB_Description = "Clears all data from worksheet EXCEPT Analyst's initials"

    Dim lngLastRow As Long

    'Prompt user to confirm workbook reset
    strYesNo = MsgBox("Are you sure you want to reset this workbook?", vbYesNo, "Reset")
    If strYesNo = vbYes Then

... I've added the macros to a Custom Ribbon tab and also added then to the Quick Access Toolbar...
Hi,

When you manually set macros of a template workbook to controls added on a QAT or on a Custom Ribbon tab, then link to the full path name of that template workbook is established.
To solve this issue, you need to embed Ribbon/QAT controls inside customUI.xml or customUI14.xml part of your template file. When opening a copy of a template workbook auto creates controls on Ribbon/QAT linked to the macros of that workbook.
