VB works as module in worksheet but not in personal.xls

I have pieced together this module from code I found here and around.  It is simple,  it walks through each worksheet in an excel project and removes all hyperlinks and images.  However when I went to create an add in with a toolbar so I could share it,  the code no longer works as it did before.  It only removes hyperlinks from the current sheet and it removes no images that I am aware of.
Sub CleanSheet()
Dim mysheet As Worksheet
Dim shp As Shape

Set mysheet = ActiveSheet
  'Step through each sheet in the workbook
  For Each mysheet In ThisWorkbook.Sheets
     'Step through and delete each shape in the current sheet
    For Each shp In mysheet.Shapes
        shp.Delete
    Next shp
  'Remove all hyperlinks from the active sheet.
  ActiveSheet.Hyperlinks.Delete

  Next mysheet

  Set mysheet = Nothing
  Set shp = Nothing
End Sub

Any help would be appreciated!  I am sure it has something to do with Thisworkbook.sheets pointing to the personal.xls file rather than the spreadheet in question.

ThisWorkbook refers to the workbook containing the code (in this case, your add-in). Try this:

Sub CleanSheet()
Dim mysheet As Worksheet
Dim shp As Shape

  'Step through each sheet in the workbook
  For Each mysheet In ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets
     'Step through and delete each shape in the current sheet
    For Each shp In mysheet.Shapes
        shp.Delete
    Next shp
  'Remove all hyperlinks from the active sheet.
 mysheet.Hyperlinks.Delete

  Next mysheet

  Set mysheet = Nothing
  Set shp = Nothing
End Sub

Rory
