  • 1. Import Data/Mail Merge to Visio Drawing
    Anyone know how you can import specific fields in to a Visio drawing. I'm using a spreadsheet and updating Word documents with mail merger. I would like to do the same with the Visio drawing. There is no mail merge in Visio. I looked at importing data via Excel but it pulls in all the rows. Word mail merge allows you to select the rows you want to use. Basically, I have a standard visio drawing that I use as a template and have to update about 20 fields. It would nice to be able to import like a word mail merge. It would take about 30 seconds instead of 15 minutes for each. thanks for any assistance.
  • 2. Shapes for floor plans
    I am using VISIO 2003 Technical. Way back when I used VISIO 2000 - forget whether it was Tech or Pro version, I had access to a number of more sophisticated shapes than I now have in VISIO 2003. An example is a ceiling fan that actually looked like a five bladed ceiling fan. There were aslo way more shapes related to kitchen, bath and other typical home shapes. Any idea where I may locate those shapes? -- John

  • 4. Windows XP Form diagram - Label control - Caption Icon
    Hi, I'm using Visio to create Windows XP screen (mock ups). I looked under the "Common Controls," "Windows and Dialogs," and the other "Shapes" tabs but couldn't find the Label control. Where is it? Also, when I select the Window I'm designing, and right-click, there's a context-menu option to "Leave room for icon," but I can't find the way to insert an icon in the window's title bar. I need to insert an icon that's not in the palette supplied by Visio. How can I do that? Thank you in advance, your help will be greatly appreciated. Rick

 After a user has been upgraded to Visio 2003 and they open one of their old 
Visio 2002 files the program asks to convert the old files so that they can 
be used correctly by Visio 2003. The problem I am seeing is after the 
conversion process and the file is re-saved it will no longer open, instead 
as it tries to open the file the icrosoft has encountered a problem and 
needs to closemessage appears. The problem is occurring on larger files (3 
Megs or more.) As of yet I have been unable to open any of the larger 
converted files. Any help or ideas will be greatly appreciated. 
P.S. I have installed all of the office updates.

between 2002 and 2003 there were many changes, especially if the user was 
taking advantage of add-ins. the first thing to check would be if the 
documents were just drawings or had some programming involved with them.

1.Will Access 2002/2000 or Visio 2002/2000 work with MS Office 2003

We are about to deploy several thousand desktops with Windows XP Professional and Office 2003 Standard Edition.  Hundreds of our users are licensed for Visio 2000 or 2002 and Access 2000 or 2002.  

Will these programs run ok with Office 2003 SE?
If so, are there any special installation steps (e.g., install Access 200x first)?

Thanks for any help.

2.Visio 2002 can't read 2003 files saved in 2002 format

Several of the visio diagrams I created in the trial 
version of Visio 2003 and saved in Visio 2002 format are 
unreadable in Visio 2002.

Are there features in Visio 2003 that cannot be converted 
to Visio 2002 even using the "save as" feature?

5.Importing Visio 2003 file into Visio 2002

Hello Everyone,

I was wondering if anyone could give me some advice on how to open a Visio 
2003 drawing into a Visio 2002.  Is there a file/export option?  I only have 
Visio 2002 but have a file from someone who has Visio 2003.

Thanks in advance
