I wanted to make a MS Word Marco (VBA) for a MS Word Icon, which will make a horizontal line on the MS Word document, the line require:

1. The row position is the current cursor position.
2. The Length is the Page Width - Left Margin - Rigth Margin

Do you know how to make this?

Thanks a lot.

Try this code:

Dim lLineWidth As Long
   
With ActiveDocument.PageSetup
    lLineWidth = .PageWidth - .LeftMargin - .RightMargin
End With
   
lLineWidth = lLineWidth - Selection.ParagraphFormat.LeftIndent - Selection.ParagraphFormat.RightIndent
   
ActiveDocument.Shapes.AddLine 0, 0, lLineWidth, 0, Selection.Range


That should do it.  Cheers!

That is work! Thanks.
However, MS Word enabled the new line with "move object with text" feature by default.

Would you mind tell me how to disable the "move object with text" feature for the new line?

Thank you for your kind of help.
