I am trying to find a Macro that will apply shade data to all my shapes and connectors so that I can export out the tips to excel. I have manually done it for the shapes but there are too many connectors to do this on. I have seen in another post a macro to do this but it didnt seem to work on my document.

I need to insert shape data to ones that do not already have it and then add a label of ="SHAPE TIP" and a value of =Comment to all the newly inserted shape data objects and anything that had shape data but did not have the label and comment. I need this to insert the shape data even if there are no tips as I will export this to excel to find any ones I have missed.

I have added a reduced version of my document for refference. I have tried to play around with macros but to no avail. could someone let me know what the code would need to be. Thanks
