  • 1. Unable to install Visio 2003 professional
    I have had to re-install all of my software on a new hardrive and unfortunately during the installation of visio 2003 it stops and says it cannot find the file on the installation disk. I have explored the disk and find a zip file named YS561401 but even within that zip file there is no such cab file. Help! -- Thanks, Fred

that's probably not available in the basic tool, you'll have to write code 
to do it.

1.Visio Data base from drawings to link together

I have a question hopefully someone can answer.

I have several drawings of our network. I developed one diagram to house all 
the internal info ( Properties ) . Mangement wants all of our diagrams now to 
house all internal info / parts list. How can I create a single database to 
link to all of our properties to the various drawings so I can update them 
from there.

Hopefully this makes sense.


2.How to represent parent-child (base-derived class) relationship

 am trying to represent class hierarchy in a Visio (UML static structure).


I am not able to show base class-derived class relationships in this though 
I can represent association, decomposition etc.


Please help me with this problem?

3.Creating new drawing based on a Template

I have created a template with some text blocks and rectangular frame around
it. When I open a new Drawing(.vsd) file based on this template it does show
me template outlook on first page(Page 1) of New drawing. But when I insert
a new page (page 2) in Drawing (.vsd) file it doesn't show me the same
outlook as I have in first Page (Page 1).
Is there any way that I can apply template setting on all the pages on my
New drawing file (.Vsd) file. or I have to create multiple drawing each of
single page which I think is very odd solution

Please advise.

4.Create Viso Drawing based on Excel spreadsheet

I am trying to find out how to create a Visio drawing based on the contents 
of an excel spreadsheet.  I did many years ago, but I can remember how I did 
it.  If I recall, I had a spreadsheet in a predefined format.  The second 
column included the steps in the process.  Those steps would then be created 
in the drawing.

5.How to create one stencils on a drawing based on a spreadsheet


I'm trying to fill a drawing with data from a spreadsheet. The spreadsheet 
contains an address, phone number and name on each line.  I would like to 
generate a house stencil on the page for each entry, with the data as a text 
box below the house. This seems simple, but I can't find any clear 
documentation on how to do this.

Any help would be very much appreciated!

Thanks and best regards!
