Hi

How do I call the following code to insert an image from Resouces. oPicPath is the file path. What would I set this to? I am also getting the error "msoTrue is not declared"


    Sub Add_Pic_To_Cell(ByVal oRow As Long, ByVal oColumn As Integer, ByVal oPicPath As String)
        With Globals.ThisAddIn.Application.ActiveSheet.Pictures.Insert(oPicPath)
            With .ShapeRange
                .LockAspectRatio = msoTrue
                .Width = 75
                .Height = 100
            End With
            .Left = Globals.ThisAddIn.Application.ActiveSheet.Cells(oRow, oRow).Left
            .Top = Globals.ThisAddIn.Application.ActiveSheet.Cells(oRow, oRow).Top
            .Placement = 1
            .PrintObject = True
        End With
    End Sub

' Macro1 Macro

Dim oRow As Long
Dim oColumn As Integer
Dim oPicPath As String
oRow = 1
oColumn = 1
oPicPath = "C:\PA_ERROR.jpg"


 With ActiveSheet.Pictures.Insert(oPicPath)
            With .ShapeRange
                .LockAspectRatio = msoTrue
                .Width = 75
                .Height = 100
            End With
            .Left = ActiveSheet.Cells(oRow, oRow).Left
            .Top = ActiveSheet.Cells(oRow, oRow).Top
            .Placement = 1
            .PrintObject = True
