  • 2. Create timeline for 2500 B.C. to 100 B.C.?
    Visio only allows me to create timeline for after 1900 AD. Can I use Visio to create a timeline for 2500 BC to 100 BC? Visio's Divided timeline has exactly what I need except I can not enter BC as the start and end time. And Visio always require end time to be greater than the start time. Any suggestion on how I can do this in Visio?
  • 3. visio dimensions question
    Hi, I am creating a floor plan in Visio, and every time I drag a table onto my floor plan, it has text included within the table borders that show the length and width. I can not find anywhere to turn this feature off, and if I try to delete these dimension, I end up deleting the table itself. Is there a way to shut this off for the entire document? -- "Friends Don''t Let Friends Dial-Up"

I have recently bought and installed Office Ultimate 2007 onto a new lap top.
I now want Microsoft Project 2007 and Visio 2007.
Do I need "upgrade" versions of these (I do not have earlier versions) or 
full versions?

many thanks

You have to have previous versions of Project and Visio to get the upgrade 
price.  The Office suites do not supply an upgrade path to Visio or Project. 
You'll have to bite the bullet and buy the full program.

2.DragDrop using using Visio ActiveX Control

I have an application that has a tree view control in it that i am using to

It will work if  I have 2 instances of the application and drag from one

It will not work if I try to drag from my treeview control to the Visio
Control all in the same application.

3.Using Organization Chart Wizard that uses Excel file

Hi all, I'm using the Organization Chart Wizard in Visio to read data from an Excel file and create an organizational chart.  I'm actually using this feature to create a taxonomy of a particular programming/development topic. 

My first question is - can anyone think of a better way of doing this

My second question is - I have multiple top entities (drawing the analogy of an organization - I have multiple Presidents who do not report to anyone) - Visio is able to handle this.  However, I have entities/concepts in my taxonomy that fall under multiple entities (using the organization analogy - in some cases they fall under the two separate presidents)

To be even more clear I will demonstrate the organization analogy below
John Smith (President
                                |   Todd Rufus (Vice President
                                |                                           |
                                   Jackie Nobody (Vice President
                                                                                 Santa Claus (Chairman

Joan Smith (President
                                     Santa Claus (Chairman

I don't want to create two separate entities for Santa Claus in my excel spreadsheet - I want the same entity to be able to fall under two different entities (who don't necessarily fall under the same organizational chart)

Can someone tell me how too achieve this

In summary, I want to know if using Visio in conjuncture with Excel is the best way to represent a taxonomy of programming/development topics.  Also, I want to know how to allow a child entity to reference multiple parent entities


4.Visio 2010 Crashes Using Everytime using "Organization Chart Wizar


I'm trying to create an organization chart using the Visio 2010 
"Organization Chart Wizard (US Units)", but at the last step, Visio crashes 
EVERY time. The Excel File (Excel 2010 .xlsx format) that Visio is trying to 
pull information from contains only 4 "people" in it, and is a test file so I 
can provide it if needed.

This bug is 100% reproducible on my laptop. Visio crashes at the same point 
"Finish" -- this has happened 6 times now.

I just tried to create a new file using just the organization chart template 
(US units), and Visio crashed. But creating a new file based upon the "Audit 
Diagram (US units)" worked.

My computer:
Lenovo ThinkPad T400s -- current on all Lenovo drivers / BIOS
Windows 7 64bit -- current on all MSFT patches
Office 2010 Professional Plus 32bit
Visio Version 14.0.4760.1000 (32-bit)

Please let me know if there is any diagnostics I can run to debug this
