Excel - Remove shapes

I have added shapes to my worksheet from VBA using the following code:

With tasksheet.Shapes

With .AddShape(msoShapeRectangle, tlh1, tlh2, brh1, brh2)

With .Fill
     .ForeColor.RGB = RGB(200, 200, 200)
     .BackColor.RGB = RGB(200, 200, 200)
     .Patterned msoPattern50Percent
End With

End With

End With

This appears to work well, but I need to be able to remove all the shapes on the worksheet using a button_click().

I have also placed textboxes using addtextbox(etc..) so I must remove these at the same time.

hope someone can help.
Thanks

/Bob

You can use something like that:
for each c in activesheet.shapes
 c.delete
next
It removes texboxes too

Thanks for the solutions, but I ommitted one item.
On the worksheet are several buttons and both your solutions remove them as well, can you change the solution to leave these buttons on the worksheet.
Sorry for the ommission.

Try this one:
For Each c In ActiveSheet.Shapes
 If c.Type <> msoOLEControlObject Then
  c.Delete
 End If
Next

Good luck!
