Changing the Path for Graphics Files
Change the path for the Const StartFolder to the folder where the graphics to
be used are located. This won't disallow navigating to any other path; the
Insert Picture dialog box simply uses this path as a starting point. To use the
default file location set for a particular installation of Word, just remove the
text between the quotes (but leave the quote pairs).

Associating a Picture with a Page
Using a graphic’s name, this procedure moves that graphic to the page where it
should always reside.
Example file:
Scenario: Word for Windows was originally conceived in
the late 1980s purely as a word processing program. As
users' expectations increased, Microsoft added numerous
layout capabilities to it. One piece of functionality it is still
missing, however, is the ability to "lock" a graphical object to
a particular page.
Graphical objects formatted with text wrap are always
anchored to a paragraph. They always appear on the same
page as that paragraph. So even if an object has been
positioned relative to the page (Move with text is turned off),
as edits are made to the text, the object may move to
another page.
Although this is "expected behavior" in Word, it can be
extremely irritating. Repositioning the graphics is time
consuming and somewhat error prone.
This tool can quickly reposition all graphics formatted with
text wrap that are positioned relative to a page. It also
includes a form for assigning names.
