I would like to delete sheets 12 to the very last sheet in my collection of visio diagrams.
Can someone help me with the code on this?
I would like to keep sheets (i.e. diagrams)  1 through 11.

Assuming the number og pages can vary but that you always want to delete the last 12 pages then for example:

Sub del12()
Dim doc As Document
Dim sh As Page

    Set doc = ActiveDocument
    If doc.Pages.Count <= 12 Then Exit Sub
    For x = 1 To 12
        doc.Pages(doc.Pages.Count).Delete False
    Next
End Sub

Chris definitely has the right idea but I think the logic isn't quite right. Try this to always leave the first 11 or fewer pages.
Sub Delete12Plus()
    
    Dim doc As Visio.Document
    Set doc = ActiveDocument

    While doc.Pages.Count >= 12
        doc.Pages(doc.Pages.Count).Delete False
    Wend

End Sub

Yeah, I focussed on last 12 pages to delete NOT to keep only the first 11, doh!
