Visio 2000 Entity Relationship Model - Removing hidden relationships

I have built an Entity Relationship Model in Visio 2000 using the Entity Relationship stencil/functionality.  During the build I deleted a number of relationships without removing them from the model.  When I do an error check now, these are all thrown out as errors (e.g. the relationship is incomplete etc.).

Apart from manually re-creating the relationship and giving it the same name as the previous relationship and then deleting it, is there any other way to display these "hidden" relationships so that I can delete them?

Deleting a shape from the diagram does not delete it from the UML model! You must also delete it from within the UML Navigator window, displaying UML elements as icons on a hierarchical tree view.

I do not think there is way apart from what is given above
"Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed at the beginning of this article." i.e. visio 2000

you can still try in microsoft office TA ... people there are likely to know more
