Default Locking Frame position to page

I have just created 3 macros that insert different sized frames onto a
worddocument page.

Basically the page layout is 4 columns, but we need to have either a 1, 2 or
3 column image on each page.

Selecting an appropriate macro inserts the appropriate frame formatted as we
want it.

We want to lock the frame to the page where it is inserted, rather than the
position of the cursor at the time it was inserted (at the moment the frame
will move to the next page if more text is inserted)

Can we do this?

No. You can set the position of the frame with respect to the page
margins of whatever page it's currently on, but you can't lock it to a
particular page.

The reason is that the frame (like all other floating objects) is
anchored to a particular paragraph of regular text -- initially the
paragraph where the cursor was when you inserted the frame, although
that can be changed. The frame and the anchor paragraph must always be
on the same page. If the anchor paragraph moves to another page, the
frame will also go with it.

If you absolutely need this sort of layout capability, use Publisher
instead of Word.
