    Add reference to Microsoft Windows Image Acquisition x2.0

    Sub Scan()
    Dim objCommonDialog As WIA.CommonDialog
    Dim objImage As WIA.ImageFile
    Dim strScanName As String
    ' instantiate Scan WIA objects
    Set objCommonDialog = New WIA.CommonDialog
    Set objImage = objCommonDialog.ShowAcquireImage
    strScanName = Environ$("TEMP") & "\Scan.jpg" ' set temporary file
    If Not objImage Is Nothing Then
    If Dir(strScanName) "" Then Kill strScanName
    objImage.SaveFile strScanName 'save into temp file
    DoEvents
    'Word
    Selection.InlineShapes.AddPicture strScanName ' insert in doc

    So I created a Macro using the code you supplied, thank you, i was wondering if there was a way to go further and include code for the selection that you make once that Insert Image window pops up. Thanks
