I have searched Word Help for this, but Word Help was no help, so ...

The other day, I ran across a situation where I thought I needed to reassign the function of a toolbar button in Word, but I couldn't find anything on how to do this. What I mean is, suppose that when you click this button, it currently applies a style called, "Nice Normal Text Style." You want to keep the button as is, and where it is, but you want it to instead apply a style called "Totally Whacked-Out Text Style." Can you do this? The only way I can see to do it now is to delete the button from the toolbar in question and recreate it on that toolbar.
