Any ideas as to why the following script will not work in MS Word 2010 This does work in MS Word 2000. It errors on line 3 with indicating a problem with bookmark.  This is a new PC Windows 7 Office 2010 that replaced  Windows 2000 Office 2000. I moved all word docs and template files to the same location on the new PC.

Sub GoFormal()
    Selection.GoTo What:=wdGoToBookmark, Name:="Signature"
    Selection.Find.ClearFormatting
    With Selection.Find
        .Text = ""
        .Replacement.Text = ""
        .Forward = True
        .Wrap = wdFindAsk
        .Format = False
        .MatchCase = False
        .MatchWholeWord = False
        .MatchWildcards = False
        .MatchSoundsLike = False
        .MatchAllWordForms = False
    End With
    Selection.InlineShapes.AddPicture FileName:= _
        "C:\Document\Templates\Formal.bmp", LinkToFile:=False, SaveWithDocument _
        :=True
End Sub

What is the error message?

Incidentally the Selection.Find object doesn't seem to do anything.

This code should do what yours seems to be trying to achieve.
Sub GoFormal()
    With ActiveDocument
     .InlineShapes.AddPicture FileName:= _
            "C:\Document\Templates\Formal.bmp", LinkToFile:=False, SaveWithDocument _
            :=True, Range:=.Bookmarks("Signature").Range
    End With
End Sub

SaveWithDocument _:=True  


Basically the Range information. Now it works fine

The code required the bookmark to know where in the document to to place the picture. If it is going where you need it anyway, then the missing bookmark was unnecessary.
