Problems with Shape Data Sets

Problems with Shape Data Sets

Problems with Shape Data Sets

I have Visio pro 2007
 I have about 30 stencil files, making up about 1700 masters.  What I am
trying to do is go in and update the whole stencil file by taking out two
custom properties (list price and discount code), and updating one field with
today's date (revision date).  

What I am using is shape data sets to do this.  For the first two files,
this worked perfectly.  When I got to my third file and applied my new shape
data sets, only the date changed.  I told the shape data sets to delete the
two rows, but once applied, the two rows remain.  Is there something I'm
missing?  I don't know why this function would work for some files, and then
not work for others.  I really need a simple solution for this.  It would
take entirely too long to go in and edit each shape data field individually.
Is this something that I will eventually have to create VBA code for?
