vb10 adding a label in excell

Hello Experts,
I got this sentence from a previous question.

the definition is accepted by vb10

Dim sh As Shape = objsheet.Shapes.AddLabel(msoTextOrientationHorizontal, 62.25, 97.5, 72, 72)

after that i need to change text, fonsize, fontcolor, move position.
How can I manipulate the object created lines above??

So far the following sentence is not accepted:
sh.textframe.characters.text = "AAAAAAA"

Your code works just fine, with slight modification.  What do you mean not accepted?

here's the modified code:
Sub test()
Dim sh As Shape
Dim objSheet As Worksheet

    Set objSheet = Sheet1
    Set sh = objSheet.Shapes.AddLabel(msoTextOrientationHorizontal, 62.25, 97.5, 72, 72)
    sh.TextFrame.Characters.Text = "AAAAAAA"
End Sub

Open in new window

See attached demonstration.
