If I have a Shape object (e.g. looping through For Each s In Application.ActiveSheet.Shapes) which is located entirely within a single cell.

How can I determine where to move the shape so it is in the bottom right of that cell?

Shape.Top = Shape.TopLeftCell.Top + Shape.TopLeftCell.Height - Shape.Parent.Height
   Shape.Left = Shape.TopLeftCell.Left + Shape.TopLeftCell.Width - Shape.Parent.Width
