  • 1. Editing embedded Excel sheets in Visio
    I'm trying to use a macro to edit cell values in an embedded Excel Worksheet. The embedded worksheet is only in the Visio page, it's not linked to an actual Excel spreadsheet. I have tried to use the macro recorder to get the code I need, but the only code it records is me selecting the Worksheet object, and it doesn't record anything when I change cell values. Any help would be appreciated. Suggestions?

  • 3. Arc of fixed radius
    Hi All I'd like to draw an arc [i.e. a segment of a circle] of fixed radius and length [e.g. 90 degree arc with a radius of 100mm] - is there a simple way to do this ? It is to connect to perpendicular lines together as part of an engineering drawing, so it needs to be accurate. I guess there is a way to do this, but I just can't see it !!! I'm using Visio 2003. Thanks :) -- Regards Swansea Jack
  • 4. Org Chart -- Imports from Word of Job Descriptions?
    We are new to Visio, using the trial version. My wife's boss just dumped a project on her that I said I'd try to help her with. Her new, computer illiterate, boss is making many organizational changes (small university) and wants to make a PowerPoint presentation illustrating these changes. He wants to be able to click on a position and have the job description for that position pop-up as a new page/slide. The job descriptions are in Word 2003. My wife has Word & PowerPoint 2007 on her machine at work, and we have Office 2003 on our PC's at home. Is this possible in Visio, or should we be using a different application? Neither of us are very techno-savvy, so if this is possible, could you please explain, in simple terms, how we should go about doing this. Many, many thanks for any assistance you can provide. Lee

How do I resize text as if it was geometry?

Postby 16jXldeg158 » Mon, 04 Feb 2008 04:25:01 GMT

I have a group made of text and geometry, and when i resize the group, the 
text stays the same font it was written in.    
How do I turn the text into a collection of re sizable lines? (if that's the 
way to solve this)

1.What am I doing wrong here ?

Hi all,
I'm hoping someone can help me out with a bit of VBA in Visio.

It looks ok, but I'm getting a type mismatch error :(
(It's just a simple bit of code I'm using to figure out how to do something)

Public Sub callDummy()
	Dim shp As Visio.Shape
	Set shp = Visio.ActiveWindow.Selection.Item(1)
	Dummy (shp)	' <-- Get Type Mismatch here on compile :(
End Sub

Public Sub Dummy(shp As Visio.Shape)
	If (shp.Master Is Nothing) Then
		MsgBox ("It's Nothing")
	ElseIf (IsEmpty(shp.Master)) Then
		MsgBox ("It's Empty")
	ElseIf (IsNull(shp.Master)) Then
		MsgBox ("It's Null")
		MsgBox ("Bingo!")
	End If
End Sub

2.Printing - what am I doing wrong?

So I have a basic flowchart.  All of the items are on the grid paper on the screen.  The grid paper starts at 0 and goes to 8 1/2" horizontally and 11" vertically.  When I print, only half of the thing prints on the paper...the bottom half.  I dont know what I am doing wrong especially since I just got this program AND I have restarted the program several times AND started new flowcharts just to make sure I didn't do something.

3.Database Diagramming just plain doesn't work - What am I doing wro

I reverse engineer the database from SQL 2005 it works great.  Drag a dozen 
or so tables to the page, it works great.

Go get a coffee.  Drag another table onto the diagram.  The Foriegn Key 
relationships, which worked for the previous tables, do not appear for the 
new table.   I have not changed any settings, or options.  It simply refuses 
to read relationships from the model.

I start the diagram over.  Everything works.  This time when I drag and drop 
 the same table I get the Foriegn Key relationships.  I move a few things 
around, it stops working.

I move a table to make the diagram prettier.  Columns in tables that were 
there before, are gone.  These are columns that are involved in foriegn key 

I attempt to refresh the model from the database to get the columns back.  
It tells me that every single table is out of synch -- even though no tables 
have changed. 

I attempt to adjust a relationship connector.  It disconnects from the table 
and is now free floating.  When I reconnect it to the table, the relationship 
is wrong, and columns have been added to the table that were not there before.

I'm open to suggestions here, as I must be doing something completely wrong.

It seems like the table definition piece works, but the relationship piece 
does not.  I've scoured the options / settings dialogs and can't find any 
option that would prevent it from placing existing relationships on the 


4.Visio Automation:Text/Shape Resizing to adjust text in Shape

I am automating Visio2007 using vb.net2005 to draw organogram. The wizard 
runs and the organogram is drawn on the visio page with all the nodes/shapes. 
But the problem is that some shapes' text is little longer and not fit in the 
box shape and comes out of the box. How can I handle the issue via code? 
Thanks to all in advance.
