VBA Word 2003:  Vertical Cursor Position as a Variable

I'm trying to format a paragraph based on vertical cursor position.  If it's at this position then do this... if it's at that position, do that, etc.

I was able to use the Selection.Information(wdVerticalPositionRelativeToTextBoundary) to determine the cursor position.  Is there anyway to retrieve this information and set it as a variable?  

Thanks for your help!  JTG

Not sure I understand the problem, but I note with interest the 'command' as a numpty it's not one i've come across.  It can be set to a variable easily as I guess you know so I am obviously missing something.

Sub ee_22491486()
Dim vert_int As Integer
Dim vert_single As Single
    vert_int = CInt(Selection.Information(wdVerticalPositionRelativeToTextBoundary))
    vert_single = Selection.Information(wdVerticalPositionRelativeToTextBoundary)
End Sub
