    What about the "Range" parameter for placement location? How do I set it to the end of the document?

    1. With AxSpreadsheet1.ActiveDocument.Application.Selection.Range.InlineShapes.AddOLEControl("Forms.CommandButton.1").OLEFormat.Object
      .caption = "eSig"
      End With

  2. How i get a location of cursor click in word document for or is there any property to create a button from code to word document at particular location?
