position and resize the same graphics on all worksheets using VBA

Dear Experts:

I got a graphic on every worksheet of my current workbook with the exception of worksheets named 'Results' and 'Overall View'.

All these identical graphics have the same name, i.e. 'my_graphic_1'

I now would like to run a macro that performs the following actions:

Positioning of the graphic 'my_graphic_1' in all of the worksheets (with the exception of worksheets named 'Results' and 'Overall View': From Left = 180 points, From Top = 70 points

Resizing of the graphic 'my_graphic_1' in all of the worksheets (with the exception of worksheets named 'Results' and 'Overall View'): Width = 5 cm, Height = 12 cm, lock Aspect Ratio is off.

Help is much appreciated. Thank you very much in advance.

Regards, Andreas

Hi Andreas,

You may try something like this...

Sub PositionAndResizeGraphics()
Dim ws As Worksheet
Dim shp As Shape

For Each ws In Worksheets
    If ws.Name <> "Results" And ws.Name <> "Overall View" Then
        On Error Resume Next
        Set shp = ws.Shapes("my_graphic_1")
        On Error GoTo 0
        If Not shp Is Nothing Then
            With shp
                .LockAspectRatio = msoFalse
                .Left = 180
                .Top = 70
                .Width = 5 * 28.34646
                .Height = 12 * 28.34646
            End With
        End If
    End If
Next ws
End Sub
