I'm using the following code to insert an image into an Excel 2007 Worksheet utilizing VB6 (not a macro).

Const msoFalse = 1
Sub positionpicture()
Dim p As Picture
Dim wkb As Workbook
Dim wks As Worksheet
Dim pBeginX As Single 'relative to upper-left corner of document
Dim pBeginY As Single 'relative to upper-left corner of document
Dim pEndX As Single 'relative to upper-left corner of document
Dim pEndY As Single 'relative to upper-left corner of document
Dim InchToPoint As Single

    Set wkb = ActiveWorkbook
    Set wks = Sheets("Sheet1")
   
    '18 points per .25 inches
    InchToPoint = 18 / 0.25
   
    '2 inches from the left, 6 inches down
    pBeginX = 1 * InchToPoint
    pBeginY = 1 * InchToPoint
    pEndX = 11 * InchToPoint
    pEndY = 11 * InchToPoint
   
    Set p = wks.Pictures.Insert(App.Path & "\" & "tlsig.jpg")

    'keep or lock the aspect ratio
    p.ShapeRange.LockAspectRatio = msoFalse
    'Top left corner
    p.Locked = False
    p.Left = pBeginX
    p.Top = pBeginY
End Sub

How can I resize the image and position it? The image is not responding to the above attempt to position it nor is it responding to the following code:
p.left = wks.range("A39").left
p.top = wks.range("A39").top

Thanks.

I got it:

Sub PositionPicture3()

Dim Excel_App As Excel.Application
Const msoFalse = 1

With Excel_App
  ActiveSheet.Shapes(ActiveSheet.Shapes.Count).Select

    With Selection
        .ShapeRange.LockAspectRatio = msoFalse
        .ShapeRange.Top = 660
        .ShapeRange.Left = 10
        .ShapeRange.Width = 200
        .Placement = xlMoveAndSize
    End With
End With
