Which I think boils down to:

    CommandBars.FindControl(ID:=6382).Execute

Thanx Joanne!
Those were good links.

I also discovered last week that one of the problems we were having was that my picture mounting macro was still residing on an old .dot template.  When i remade one based a .dotm template, it 'seems' to default to the 'automatically perform basic compression on save' option.

I haven't thrown it to the users yet, but i think that will make them happy.  If not, now i can make the dialog box pop up for them.

You're the best!!!  

XOXO
