How to position a graph in word in a specific page?


Positioning a graph in word is necessary to put the graph in a page where the description or other supporting details for the graph will be placed.

But, how to place or put a graph in a specific page in a document?

By default, the graph will be generated in the first page of the document.

To position a graph in any page in the document is to create a bookmark.

If you know exactly where to put the graph, manually create a bookmark by clicking  “Insert” in the ribbon and selecting “Bookmark”.

After clicking “Bookmark” it will ask for a name and create any name to define the bookmark.

Once the bookmark has been named and created, you can call the bookmark via VBA.

Here’s the code to call and select a bookmark:

ActiveDocument.Bookmarks("graph1").Select


graph1 – is the name of the bookmark.

After selecting the bookmark via VBA, call the method to generate the chart.

Like:

'initialize and set graph type
 Set shp = ActiveDocument.Shapes.AddChart(xlXYScatterLines, -18, 80, 480, 380)   
    shp.Name = "Profitchart"
    Set cht = shp.Chart
……… rest of the code follows ..


That’s one way on how to position a graph in a word document, if there’s another way on how to do it please leave a comment and share your ideas.


Till next time, cheers!

Robocopy [source][destination]   [file to be copied]
robocopy c:\local_c_folder  \\PC_network\shared_folder   file_to_be_copied_xx.txt
The command will be completed successfully provided the network access right has no issues.

Robocopy works quite good on large files. A simple copy or xcopy command will also work but the speed might vary.

Robocopy is free it can be accessed from command line. No need to install the resource kit tool if the operating system is Windows 7 or newer version.
