turn off work planes sketches etc - macro/batch process

Please forgive me if this has been asked before, the search function didn't throw anything up...

 

Is there anyway to batch-process a load of parts and assemblies to turn off work planes, sketches etc in the master design view rep?

 

I'm aware of the Object Visibility feature but I want them turned off in the model tree.

Please take a look at the attached macro, and have a try.

Thanks,

The macro appears not to drill down to parts and subassemblies.  Top level sketches and work planes get shut off. 

It also seems very slow.  Processing a simple 5 part assembly, there is about a 2 minute delay while the macro does its thing.

 

There is no annotation, so it is hard to follow where problem might be.
