I'm rolling off of my current engagement and would like to donate a copy of the Table of Contents that I created for the project's many Visio process maps.

Thank you wapperdude for your assistance.

Delete Un-needed TOC shapes.

Is there a string of VBA code that could be added to this code that would delete all the shapes off of the TOC page prior to adding a refreshed list of page names on the first tab named "TOC".

I have been using this code and would like to run it every time the project gets refreshed. I have been removing pages but the old page name remains behind even though it had been deleted.

Thanks for any assistance.

SubPlanner.

Subplanner - Your suggestion is a good one. I was unable to figure out how to do that because the items written to the TOC page don't appear to be addressable (i.e. not objects). Good luck with your quest.

SubPlanner

I figured it out. I am using this code.
My sheet is named TOC. It is the first sheet.

Public Sub Del_TOC()
    Dim DiagramServices As Integer
   
    DiagramServices = ActiveDocument.DiagramServicesEnabled
    ActiveDocument.DiagramServicesEnabled = visServiceVersion140

    'Application.ActiveWindow.SelectAll
    ActiveWindow.Page = ActiveDocument.Pages("TOC")
   
    ActiveWindow.SelectAll
    Application.ActiveWindow.Selection.DeleteEx (visDeleteNormal)

    'Restore diagram services
    ActiveDocument.DiagramServicesEnabled = DiagramServices
End Sub

@xgrove,
Thanks for sharing. It's always nice when people give back a little bit from what the get in the forum.
@ xgrove and subPlanner,
Deleting everything on the TOC page can be a solution, but not if you have other "decorations" on it.
Better would be to mark the TOCEntries as such, then delete only them.
I had a little time to exercise and thought, I'd share as well:

@Yacine.....

I do like the ability to keep other items on the page.
But, when you run this code over and over, you will get multiple boxes on top of one another.
I guess that's why I did a full delete.
Let me know if you come up with a way to keep just one record of each page on the TOC page.

Yacine, I did  not look to well at that, sorry.

I am attaching my latest variation on the TOC code.
