Can Visio connect to Acces db query with expression field?



  • 1. How I a print Visio comments
    Visio 2000 - I need to print the comments (on a separate sheet) that I am imbedded in some of the shapes on my flow chart. I have been able to locate this option in the program. Can anyone help?
  • 2. Fraction Display
    I am trying to use fraction measurements is a drawing and some of the fractions don't display correctly. If I use 1/4, 1/2, etc. they display fine but if I use 1/8, 3/8, etc. they display differently. Is there a tool in Visio 2003 Pro that controls how fractions are displayed? Thanks
  • 3. Visio and Other Formats problem, please help!
    Isn't there any way to convert VISIO files in other format where you can edit the shape text? (let's say any other Office app, as Powerpoint,Word, etc.). I understand you can save as Autocad DWG, but what if you don't have autocad?. All the "converters" I've researched allows you to view the file, print the file or convert it to a graphic format (lots of them!) in which you cannot modify the shapes text. I'ts driving me nuts!. The visio files were left to us by a contracted adviser, who did the job in his laptop, where he had VISIO. We paid already for the files, the documentation in it is ours, but we now need to change some text in them, such as staff position name or the owner of a position, for example, and we don't have VISIO, and there is no intention to purchase it by now. The shortest way could be redo the drawings from the beginning in other app, but the work to be done just to change three or four words in each drawing is too much, and as Murphy stated somewhere, we are a little tight on time, tight enough to make useless to try restarting the drawing from scratch. Is there any solution? Thanks. -- Joshua

in my experience odbc doesn't like querying things where there is an 
executable on the other side. I've often ended up moving the code into visio 
and doing the work there. It's an ODBC error, not visio.

I haven't dug into it real deep, but, the suspicion is the data and query 
are pulled across to the client side and the executables are not. That's 
what causes the disconnect.
