I have a template set up in Microsoft Word.  There is a bookmark called IMAGE, and that is where I want to insert an image if one is selected from my VB program.  In my VB program I am using a common dialog box to allow people to choose an image and then I have a picture box called picture1 that displays the image, so that a person can see if he/she likes the image before creating the word document with the image in it... the only problem is that I am having trouble inserting the image.  I have tried copying it to the clipboard and pasting it in the bookmark, but that didn't seem to work...here is what I have so far:

    ElseIf UCase$(lsBookmarkName) = "IMAGE" Then
        Clipboard.Clear   ' Clear Clipboard.
        Clipboard.SetData LoadPicture(Me.CommonDialog2.FileName)
       loWord.Bookmarks("IMAGE").Select
       ActiveWindow.ActivePane.Selection.Paste

For some reason it puts whatever is in the next bookmark in the place where I have the IMAGE bookmark...

Because the image you are trying to insert is a file it would be much easier to have word do the insert instead of copying and pasting. Try this....

Selection.GoTo What:=wdGoToBookmark, Name:="IMAGE"
Selection.InlineShapes.AddPicture FileName:= _
        "\\Cbs_imd\DATA\users\schworgj\temp\Pictures\Iceberg.bmp", _
        LinkToFile:=False, SaveWithDocument:=True
