Macro insertion point coordinates location

I'm looking to find where the insertion point of a macro is stored. I've gone through the SQLite database of the macro and I can't find a record for it. I've also looked into the meta data on the .ewg file and can't find it either. There has to be a location where it stores the x,y coordinates of the insertion point somewhere.

I maintain nearly a couple thousand macros that I use with Excel Automation to generate my electrical projects and every time I create a macro with any kind of symbol or wire in it, the insertion point of that macro is in a different spot (I haven't determined exactly what drives the location of the insertion point, I'd love to know that too). 

I'd really like to add a command to my add-in that will set the insertion of every macro to 0,0 so that I don't have to open each macro after its created and set it manually. 

I'm using Solidworks Electrical 2020 SP4.
