I have a spreadsheet with more than 100 tabs.  The data I need to identify is located in a Word Art graphic at the top of each tab.  I plan to write a loop to go through each tab and look at each word art object, but I can't figure out the code to capture the text in the word art.  Help would be much appreciated.

This will get you started:

Public Sub ExamineWordArt()

    Dim Worksheet As Worksheet
    Dim Shape As Shape
   
    For Each Worksheet In ThisWorkbook.Worksheets
        For Each Shape In Worksheet.Shapes
            MsgBox Shape.OLEFormat.Object.ShapeRange.TextEffect.Text
        Next Shape
    Next Worksheet

End Sub

A refinement to only look at WordArt shapes:

Public Sub ExamineWordArt()

    Dim Worksheet As Worksheet
    Dim Shape As Shape
   
    For Each Worksheet In ThisWorkbook.Worksheets
        For Each Shape In Worksheet.Shapes
            If Shape.Type = msoTextEffect Then
                MsgBox Shape.OLEFormat.Object.ShapeRange.TextEffect.Text
            End If
        Next Shape
    Next Worksheet

End Sub
