  • 3. personalize OrgChart template, stencil and master properties
    Hello, I need to adapt the OrgChart Template to get the following features: 1. need to make custom properties to master shapes (so that they are availables each time i drag and drop a master from the stancil to the drawing). This means two things: first remove the default built-in properties (name, title, email, etc), and second add my own properties. I want ONLY my own properties on masters!! 2. need a custom stencil (based on the OrgChart stencil) with master with my custom properties defined at point 1. 3. On the masters' istances on the drowaing I want to display my own custom property named "label" and "editor" instead of "name" and "title" 4. would like to keep the feature that when you drag a master on another istance in the drawing it automatically makes a connection between the two. 5. in one word, would like to keep the organizational chart features, including the Menu in the menu bar. 6. need to export the drowing including the custom properties and their values to an EXCEL file. Please help me, I've been reading books, ebooks, and trying with Visio 2003 Professional for 2 days and cannot figure this out. Thank you a lot Giovanni

How to Generate Database from ER Diagram

Postby DCatherman » Sat, 04 Oct 2003 22:08:28 GMT

I have installed Visual Studio .NET Enterprise Architect 
with Visio.  I have generated an ER diagram and now need 
to forward engineer the model to a physical 
implimentation.  But the "Generate Database" menu is 
missing.  How do you generate the database?

Thanks, Dave C
