    adding a signature text to a "Signature Line"

    I have over 50 excel files to prepare and need to add a visible Signature Line in them and would like to automatically sign them with my name in the signature text box.

    I have this code

    I cant seem to find out online what the signature text box is called, where in the object it's located (assuming it's not in setup) and how to automatically populate it with text instead of a signature picture image for example. I havent tried "SigLine" which someone suggested online -but still dont know if it has a location before it.

    all the other bits seem to work...

    Re: adding a signature text to a "Signature Line"

    just wanted to add a new issue that I have.... once I have a signed file, I would like to save it as a new file and make future changes to it via VBA macro... in order to do this I need to make the file editable but it will be read-only with the signature still in, even if I can save it as a different file name. so how do I remove the signature and make the file editable with VBA?

    I have tried without success all the following

    i also tried the following but this didnt work

    - i'm, guessing because I'm trying to remove the image that I added whereas "sign" is used to create an image on the signature box / strip
