Visio: copy text of a master shape to User-define Cells (Variable)

Hi together

Here's what I want to do:
1. define a master shape (e.g. with the name Revision). This shape is an input field and should be used later on different pages independently.
2. in the user defined cells of the drawing sheet the content of the "Revision Shape" should be read and saved as variable User.Revision.

How can the text of the MasterShape be read? The "Revision Shape" is located on the drawing sheet.
For non-master shapes this can be done with User.Revision=SHAPETEXT(Sheet.3!TheText). A User.Revision=SHAPETEXT(Revision!TheText) does not work.

Thanks for your help
