        I need to determine if a picture object or logo is stored in a header.
        I have the following code.

        Set rangeHeader = ActiveDocument.Sections(x).Headers(wdHeaderFooterFirstPage).Range

        If (Selection.Type = wdInlineShapeEmbeddedOLEObject) Or (Selection.Type = wdInlineShapeLinkedOLEObject) Or (Selection.Type = wdInlineShapeLinkedPicture) Or (Selection.Type = wdInlineShapeOLEControlObject) Or (Selection.Type = wdInlineShapePicture) Then

        MsgBox (“Pic found”)
        ‘perform other code

        The problem I’m having with the above code is when I test on a current document that has a logo returns true.
        However when I testing on a doc that doesnt have logo in header still returns TRUE.

        Does anyone know/have code to obtain the correct information.
        Thanks in advance!

        Hi Diana,

        What about:

        Set rangeHeader = ActiveDocument.Sections(x).Headers(wdHeaderFooterFirstPage).Range
        If rangeHeader.InlineShapes.Count > 0 Then 'etc.

          Thanks Gary – that worked –
          If rangeHeader.InlineShapes.Count > 0 Then

          I previoulsy had used the below code ‘Shapes’ & wasnt working.
          intShapeCount = 0
          intShapeCount = ActiveDocument.Sections(x).Headers(wdHeaderFooterPrimary).Shapes.Count
          If intShapeCount = 0 Then
          ‘perform logic
