Adding Images to Header using VBA (Word VBA)

Use Pictures/Images in Word Document Header using Word VBA

Most often we will be using company's logo in Header. Here is the way to do it using VBA

Sub Add_File_Header()

Set docActive = Word.ActiveDocument

ActiveDocument.Sections(1).Headers(wdHeaderFooterPrimary).Range.InlineShapes.AddPicture "C:\My Documents\My Pictures\MYPicture.bmp"

docActive.ActiveWindow.ActivePane.View.SeekView = wdSeekCurrentPageHeader

ActiveDocument.Sections(1).Headers(wdHeaderFooterPrimary).Range.Text = "Header text" ' ERROR

objWord.ActiveDocument.ActiveWindow.View.SeekView = wdSeekMainDocument

With docActive.PageSetup

.DifferentFirstPageHeaderFooter = False 'Set this to false will put text on first page, else will not.

End With

End Sub

    This code is good but works only for the first section of the document. If you change section number in the code, the picture still goes to the first section.
