The Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) project of every Visio document also has a class module called ThisDocument. When you reference the ThisDocument module from code in a VBA project, it returns a reference to the project's Document object. For example, the code in a document's project can display the name of the project's document in a message box with this statement:
Visual Basic for Applications
    MsgBox ThisDocument.Name
