As I have said, an inline shape is a shape that is placed in the text layer of a document and moves with the surrounding text. Inline shapes are restricted to pictures, OLE objects, and ActiveX controls. We will content ourselves with a single example of placing pictures in a document.
To add an inline picture to a document, use the AddPicture method of the InLineShapes collection. The syntax is:
FileName, LinkToFile, _
FileNameparameter is the name of the picture file. The optional
LinkToFile is set to True to link the picture to the file from which it was created and False to use an independent copy of the original picture. The default value is False. If the picture is linked, the optional
SaveWith Document is set to True to save the linked picture with the document. The default value is False. The parameter
Range is the range that will be replaced by the picture (unless, of course, the range is an insertion point).
Dim para As Paragraph For Each para In ActiveDocument.Paragraphs If para.Style = "Heading 2" Then ActiveDocument.InlineShapes.AddPicture _ "d:\word\atten.bmp", , , para.Range End If Next para
