    Hi All, I need to build a world map with names of countries around the world where the factories are located, and when I click on specific country name it links to the results of a query in Access which carries details of prodcuts in that location Questions: 1) Can I build this model in MS Visio, and if so how can I bring this World map into a visio drawing. 2) And if I can successful do so , how do I set up this dynamic link on a country name such that when I click on it, it links to an excel sheet(the results of the Access query exported to an excel sheet),Or 3) Is there any better method to acheive the same result. Please Advice. Thank You

  • 4. UML Model Diagram and DirectX Class, is it possible?
    Hi, I'm currently trying to design some libraries that use DirectX objects (DirectX 9 Managed) and would like to have access to these classes without creating them by hand in Visio each time I need a new one. I mean, if I could bind the dlls or something so the classes or types or enums would be available, it would be great... Is it possible? thanks ThunderMusic

1.Newbie Question, Displaying scaled measurement while drawing a lin

Hello,

I'm trying to find a setting to allow Visio to show the scaled measurement 
as I draw a line. As I draw the line, I'd like to see the value change with 
line length.

I'm guessing I'm not looking in the right spot.

Thanks for any help!

2.Setting Scale on drawings...newbie question

Ok. I have a drawing I made on 8.5"x11" paper. On my *real* graph paper, 1' 
in the real world = .5" on the paper. So I set Visio to draw that, by setting 
the page Setup, drawing scale to Pre-defined scale: Architectural, 1/2" = 
1'0". This reduces my page size to 72 ft. x 48 ft. for a printer paper of 11 
x 8.5 (horizontal).  I don't want my drawing size 36"x24" I want it 8.5" x 
11". Is this just the way it is, or can I have the drawing page = the printer 
page and still be 1' = .5"? Or am I just missing something here. When I do 
this, it resizes and scrambles my header, etc. Do I just have to setup this 
size when I begin, and can't go back? It just seems boneheaded. My real paper 
1/4" squares can be anything I want, but I just can't get Visio to do the 
same....  

3.Setting Scale on drawings...newbie question..part two

fMore frustration: I threw out the entire amount of work I had done, and 
started over. By scaling the paper in the beginning it seems to have created 
a drawing and paper size that "match" and allow me to create the scale I 
needed. (printer paper = 8.5 x 11 landscape, fit 1 sheet across 1 sheet down, 
page size is pre-defined standard letter 11 x 8.5) Why it smashed everything 
up when I resized it last time is beyond my comprehension. So now, when I 
print, nothing comes out, it just sends a page through blank...This is just 
way to frustrating. Working by pencil is vastly less complex!
