When you add objects to a worksheet using a Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications procedure, you need to specify the coordinates of the new object, in points, relative to the upper-left corner of cell A1 on a worksheet as well as the height and width of the object. Note, however, that you can add objects and make their position relative to a specified range by using the corresponding Top, Left, Width, and Height properties of the Range object.
NOTE: One point is approximately equal to 1/72 inch.
