With myDocument.Shapes
    numShapes = .Count
    If numShapes > 1 Then
        numTextShapes = 0
        ReDim shpTextArray(1 To 2, 1 To numShapes)
        For i = 1 To numShapes
            If .Item(i).HasTextFrame Then
                numTextShapes = numTextShapes + 1
                shpTextArray(numTextShapes, 1) = .Item(i).Name
                shpTextArray(numTextShapes, 2) = .Item(i) _
                    .TextFrame.TextRange.Text
