Moving the Insertion Point to the End of a Line

If you need to move the insertion point to the end of a line under the control of a VBA macro, it is done with the EndKey method. Syntax examples are as follows:

Selection.EndKey Unit:=wdLine, Extend:=wdMove
Selection.EndKey Unit:=wdLine, Extend:=wdExtend

The first line simply moves the insertion point, the second moves it and selects all the text between the current insertion point and the end of the line.

Hi Allen,

I have the following requirement:
I am taking print screen of my application and pasting it on the other word doc using macro in MS word.
But whenever I am taking screenshots , latest screenshot is getting pasted on the top and thus the the previous screenshot gets down in the doc.
Could you please help me with the piece of code which can paste the screenshot at the end of the other screenshots.

Thanks,
Himanshu
