I am adding an attachment to an outlook email via VBA and want to manipulate the position of the attachment within the email because it is ending up in the middle of the email body.  I understand that there is a position argument within attachment.add that may help me, but I can't find what the possible values of this property are.

The position parameter only applies to RTF formatted messages and specifies the character position within the message that the attachment is to be placed at.  You can pass it -1 to place the attachment at the begining of the message.  If you want to place it at the end then you can use the Len() function to get the length of the message body and use it as the position argument.
