"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

try this one.

Sub AddsSHPcellRANGE()

Dim SSLeft As Double
Dim SSTop As Double
Dim SSWidth As Double
Dim SSHeight As Double

Dim SS As Range
Dim shpOval As Shape

Set SS = Range(Selection.Address)  ' change if you want specific cell <-- Range("a1")

SSLeft = SS.Left
SSTop = SS.Top
SSHeight = SS.Height
SSWidth = SS.Width

Set shp = ActiveSheet.Shapes.AddShape(msoShapeOval, SSLeft, SSTop, 10, 10)

End Sub
