Hello experts,

I am trying to programmically adjust an image placed in the header of my Word document.  I would like to use the feature "text wrapping" and choose the "square" option.  This will format my header properly.  However, even recording a macro the "text wrapping" feature is disabled.

Here is my code and attached doc.


Option Explicit

Dim objWord
Dim objDoc
Dim objSection
Dim objSelection
Dim objPageNumbers


Set objWord = CreateObject("Word.Application")
Set objDoc = objWord.Documents.Open("C:\Documents and Settings\lspaz\Desktop\Test XXX.docx")
Set objSection = objDoc.Sections(1)
Set objSelection = objWord.Selection
Set objPageNumbers = objSection.Footers(1).PageNumbers
	
Const wdPageBreak = 7
Const wdPageNumberStyleUppercaseRoman = 1


HeaderAdjuster

Sub HeaderAdjuster()


add code


End Sub

Open in new window


TEST-DOC.docx

Thank you!

HI,

pls try
Set hdr = objDoc.Sections(1).Headers(wdHeaderFooterPrimary)
Set ilshp = hdr.Range.InlineShapes(1)
Set shp = ilshp.ConvertToShape
shp.WrapFormat.Type = 0 'wdWrapSquare

Open in new window

Thank you Rgonozo1971,

I am getting a runtime error:
Variable is undefined: 'wdHeaderFooterPrimary'
Any ideas what I am doing wrong?

Option Explicit

Dim objWord
Dim objDoc
Dim hdr
Dim ilshp
Dim shp


Set objWord = CreateObject("Word.Application")
Set objDoc = objWord.Documents.Open("C:\XXX.docx")


Header


Sub Header()

Set hdr = objDoc.Sections(1).Headers(wdHeaderFooterPrimary)
Set ilshp = hdr.Range.InlineShapes(1)
Set shp = ilshp.ConvertToShape

shp.WrapFormat.Type = 0 'wdWrapSquare


End Sub

Perhaps this can help. Not sure if this is the solution.

First. In VBS wdHeaderFooterPrimary denote literal. You must define constant.
Second. Range.Text is not object.
Modify script like this.
set bjSourcRange =  objSourcDoc.Sections(1).Headers(1).Range
wscript.echo bjSourcRange.Text

Thank you, I guess I need to remove the VBA coding to make it work VBScript.  Thanks again.
