expression Required. A variable that represents a Shape object.

The position of a shape is measured from the upper-left corner of the shape's bounding box to the shape's anchor. The RelativeVerticalPosition property controls whether the shape's anchor is positioned alongside the line, the paragraph, the margin, or the edge of the page.

For a ShapeRange object that contains more than one shape, the Top property sets the vertical position of each shape.

This example sets the vertical position of the first shape in the active document to 1 inch from the top of the page.
