Problem

First of all we found this problem on https://www.eng-tips.com/viewthread.cfm?qid=443335 . So we decided to write code for it. 

Hello every one. It happend many times that I received Catproducts where somebody had deleted published element but didn’t remove linked publication.

Hence Catia shows it as broken publication. Due to I get problem with some checks. So I want to find and remove automatically broken publication from my Catparts. I can find them with macro but I don’t know how to write in macro following things:

– open from Tools -> Publications window.
– select publications with status “no element” and remove it.

So can anybody help me?
Thanks in advance!

    Thank you for great macro!!!
    I have removed lines 36 and 38, otherwise it doesn’t remove any element(I think because already selected publications have just ordinary name not “” like condition in if ) .
    Without these lines works perfectly!
    Thanks a lot!

      Hmm i tested in my environment all was good, are you sure it will not delete all publications? That If statement allow to delete only with broken link? I use CATIA V5-6 2016. It can also be to the version of CATIA.
