  • 2. Autoexec macro
    How do I create an "Autoexec" macro in Visio, to be run whenever Visio starts (not just when I open a particular document)? Visio has the same "Viewing Toolbar" problem as the other MS Office applications (Viewing toolbar displays whenever you start up MS Word or Excel or Visio, no matter how many times you turn it off). This works in MS Word: 'Add the following routine to the file Sub AutoExec() ' ' AutoExec Macro ' Macro created 4/21/2005 by Wayne Erfling ' With CommandBars("Reviewing") .Visible = False End With End Sub ...but I don't know what the equivalent of the "" file is in Visio. Do I save a Visio document to the "startup" folder? Or a .vsi file? I've found references to .vsi but no detailed information.

you have to save them in a format that the other office files can read, or 
import them as visio objects into the other documents.

1.I need to convert Visio 2003 files to Visio 2002, can this be done

File > Save As, then choose Visio 2002 whatever from the lower drop-down 

I believe the files will "round trip" back to 2003.

The file format for 2002 contained enough place-holders for information that 
was predicted to be needed for 2003. So 2003 writes a 2002 file with extra 
info. 2002 reads the file, but doesn't know what to do with some of the 
information and simply ignores it.


Hope this helps,

2.Visio should allow 3D views of office and room layouts

3.No namespace Microsoft.Office.Interop.Visio.Application

I download the Visio2003 SDK, and the version of Office Visio is

code has

Why does it?

4.Repost: Office 2007 Applications Automation and Visio 2010 Conflict

Repost for potential MVP help.

I have Visio models that call Excel and Access explicitly.  The models
work fine with Office 2007/Visio 2007 and with the proper application
Reference Library added to the VBA projects.

However, the code fails with Visio 2010.  I tracked the problem down
to some kind of conflict between the Office 12 object library
associated with 2007 and the Office 14 library installed with Visio
2010 Beta.

Removal of Visio 2010 and the associated Office 14 library makes the
problem go away.

But now of course I can't continue to test Visio 2010 and still work
on my existing models.

Anybody have any ideas on how to resolve this?

Thanks Much,


5.Available fonts in Visio vs other Office applications

Not likely.  These fonts types are not supported by the rendering technology
used in Visio.
