I'm trying to write a VB program that will open a Word document and resize all the images contained within.  This document may have as many as 20 images.  I have tried the following with little success. The first image resizes but the remaining images do not.

   Dim objWordApp As New Word.Application
   Dim objWordDoc As New Word.Document
   
   Set objWordDoc = objWordApp.Documents.Add("WordDocument.doc")

   ' Loop through the images
   For cnt = 0 To (objWordDoc.InlineShapes.Count - 1)
      objWordDoc.InlineShapes(cnt).Width = 250
      objWordDoc.InlineShapes(cnt).Height = 250
   Next

   objWordDoc.Save

It's very obvious after reading your solution.  I can't believe I didn't think of it.  Thanks again.
