The Word Visual Basic 6 (VB6) compiler lets you insert pictures using your code instead of requiring a user to manually insert a picture. The Word VB6 code uses a picture located on the hard drive and inserts the picture into the document. You use the "AddPicture" function to insert the picture from VB6.
