The ShapeLinkAdded event is one of a group of events for which the EventInfo property of the Application object contains extra information.

/DataRecordsetID = n /DataRowID = m

where n and m represent the IDs of the data recordset and data row, respectively, associated with the event.

If you want to create your own Event objects, use the Add or AddAdvise method. To create an Event object that runs an add-on, use the Add method as it applies to the EventList collection. To create an Event object that receives notification, use the AddAdvise method. To find an event code for the event you want to create, see Event codes.
