Parameters

ClassType
Type: System.Object%
Optional Object. The name of the application used to activate the specified OLE object.
FileName
Type: System.Object%
Optional Object. The file from which the object is to be created. If this argument is omitted, the current folder is used. You must specify either the ClassType or FileName argument for the object, but not both.
LinkToFile
Type: System.Object%
Optional Object. True to link the OLE object to the file from which it was created; False to make the OLE object an independent copy of the file. If you specified a value for ClassType, the LinkToFile argument must be False. The default value is False.
DisplayAsIcon
Type: System.Object%
Optional Object. True to display the OLE object as an icon. The default value is False.
IconFileName
Type: System.Object%
Optional Object. The file that contains the icon to be displayed.
IconIndex
Type: System.Object%
Optional Object. The index number of the icon within IconFileName. The order of icons in the specified file corresponds to the order in which the icons appear in the Change Icon dialog box (Insert menu, Object dialog box) when the Display as icon check box is selected. The first icon in the file has the index number 0 (zero). If an icon with the given index number doesn't exist in IconFileName, the icon with the index number 1 (the second icon in the file) is used. The default value is 0 (zero).
IconLabel
Type: System.Object%
Optional Object. A label (caption) to be displayed beneath the icon.
Range
Type: System.Object%
Optional Object. The range where the OLE object will be placed in the text. The OLE object replaces the range, unless the range is collapsed. If this argument is omitted, the object is placed automatically.

Returns the InlineShape object that represents the new OLE object.
