I am trying to find a script to convert visio vsd files to vsx either in VB or VBScript.

Any help would be appreciated.

    The only way I know how to do this is to save the VSD file as XML Stencil.

    The Visio drawing below contains a simple-minded macro that will do what you've asked for all vsd files in a directory.

    To use it, open the VB Editor window to set the directory containing your files, then run the macro.

    NOTE: For historical reasons, Experts Exchange doesn't allow upload of Visio files (*.vsd), consequently, I changed the file extension of the attachment below to .txt. After you download the file, change the file extension back to .vsd and you'll be able to open the drawing with Visio.
