I wrote a macro for Word 2000:
Sub Macro1()

ActiveDocument.Range(Start:=5000, End:=5000).Paste

End Sub

When I use this macro to paste an Autoshape (rectangel, oval, ...), it causes "Run-time error 4198". But if I reduce the number to the range of the 1st page, it works. Why this macro only runs when the spcified range is within the 1st page. And if I pasted text or bitmap, no error happens. Anyone knows how such strange thing happens?
