    Macro: text object coordinates returned as 0,0

    Amit Sarashetti

      Hi,

       

      I have a macro to export object to excel. The issue is that for all text objects the coordinates returned are always 0,0 even though they are scattered over the sheet. Coordinates for other objects is returned correctly. Sample of the macro used is below:

       

      sub getCoords

      set doc=ActiveDocument

      dim objid

      objid = "TX143"

      set chart = ActiveDocument.GetSheetObject(objid)

      chartX = chart.GetRect.Left

      chartY =  chart.GetRect.Top

      msgbox("x=" & chartX & ",y=" & chartY)

      end sub

       

      Has anyone encountered this issue?

      Appreciate any help with this.

       

      Thanks.
