'Break Link' in visio

'Break Link' in visio


I am trying to automate the following process:
1. Check to see if there is any 'link' in the visio drawing (by selecting EDIT. If there is no link then the text LINK is greyed out)
2. If there is a link, then break it by selecting 'EDIT>LINKS>BREAK LINK'

I could easily do it manually for a few files but there are thousands of files in each project folder. I wish I had a record macro button but I am using Visio2002. Any advice would be appreciated. I am proficient with VBA for visio. Just need someone to point in the right direction. Thanks.
