Find text on word document inside textbox

Hi

I'm trying to find text inside a textbox in a word document.
I've tried everything, but could not get it to highlight the word that I've searched for.
I want to add a logo where the word [LOGO] is in the document.
The replace all works, but I don't want to replace it, I want to find each word and add a logo picture in it's place.

Private Sub cmd1_Click(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles cmd1.Click
    Const wdFindContinue = 1
    Const wdMainTextStory = 1
    Dim oApp As Object = CreateObject("Word.Application")
    Dim oDoc As Object
    oApp.visible = True
    oDoc = oApp.Documents.open("C:\doc.DOC")
    Dim oStory As Object
    For Each oStory In oDoc.StoryRanges
      If oStory.StoryType <> wdMainTextStory Then
        While Not (oStory.NextStoryRange Is Nothing)
          With oStory.Find
            .Text = "[LOGO]"
            .Replacement.Text = ""
            .Wrap = wdFindContinue
            .Execute()
            MsgBox(oApp.selection.text)
          End With
          oStory = oStory.NextStoryRange
        End While
      End If
    Next oStory
    oDoc = Nothing
    oApp = Nothing
  End Sub
End Class

Text box is a shape, I think you have to look inside each shape...

Sub shTest()

Dim sh As Shape

For Each sh In ActiveDocument.Shapes
Debug.Print sh.TextFrame.TextRange.Text
Next sh

End Sub
