Changing the path to linked excel worksheets programatically

I have a requirement to change the path (name) to a number of linked worksheets by code.
I think it is something to do with the workbook.LinkSources but I am having some problems.

Am I looking at the wrong thing?  What is the property I should be loooking at?  Best of all - does someone have a piece of code to do it and is willing to share it?

For example:
Sub ChangeLinkPaths(strOldPath As String, strNewPath As String)
   Dim arrLinks, I As Long
   arrLinks = ActiveWorkbook.LinkSources(xlExcelLinks)
   If Not IsEmpty(arrLinks) Then
      On Error Resume Next
      Application.DisplayAlerts = False
      For I = LBound(arrLinks) To UBound(arrLinks)
         If InStr(1, arrLinks(I), strOldPath, vbTextCompare) > 0 Then
            ActiveWorkbook.ChangeLink arrLinks(I), Replace$(arrLinks(I), strOldPath, strNewPath), xlLinkTypeExcelLinks
         End If
      Next I
      Application.DisplayAlerts = True
   End If
End Sub
