But my problem is that i cannot able to set the picture to TOP RIGHT of the specific cell or range...
e.g: i cannot put the picture on the top right of range "E1"...

Could you post what you have.  See my example below:
Sub InsertPic()

Dim rngTarget As Range

Set rngTarget = Range("E1")

Const strPicPath = "C:\Documents and Settings\jon.vonderheyden\My Documents\My Pictures\Blank Female.JPG"

Dim dblLeft As Double

dblLeft = rngTarget.Offset(, 1).Left

Dim dblTop As Double

dblTop = rngTarget.Top

ActiveSheet.Shapes.AddPicture strPicPath, True, True, dblLeft, dblTop, 100, 100


End Sub

You basically need Range F1's Left property and then subtract the width of the picture. That will give you the correct value for the Left property of your picture.

What code are you running? If you are automating Excel from VB6 you need to fully qualify all Excel objects, so you would need something like objXL.activesheet where objXL is an Excel.Application variable
