How to use visio to create piping isometric drawings

  • 1. Creating mutually updating network database
    Hi, I am halfway through developing an access + visio based solution to catalogue the systems and service run by my institution, containing server details in the access database and displaying the servers in their racks at the visio end. This is an initial part of a wider project by my department, so sql etc may be used later. The aim is to have a visual guide to our systems and services, that is easy to update. My central problem is getting the visio shapes representing servers on the racks to feedback and take data from the database, so the information about the server can be viewed an altered at both ends. For example, getting the dabase to update and prompt for information when a new server is dragged and dropped into a rack (and for the shape to be recognise that server and autofill the server details fields appropriately), and getting the visio diagram to update when a new server is added in the access form tied to the server database. Essentially i guess its about marrying a table record with a shape, with the server name (or maybe IP address) as the unique identifier. What is the best way to do this? Should i create the database first, or enter info to the shapesheet in visio and try to generate a dabse this way? This is a big ask i know, but any pointers would be greatly appreciated. I have visio 2002 ent arch. edition installed with all the .net gubbins, and access 2003 Prof Ed.
  • 2. Visio 2003. How can I print a Visio Web page in A3 format?
    When I print the Viso generated Web page in A3 format (Landscape) , the Web page is in A4 format with whitespace below and to the right of the drawing. Is it possible to print the Visio generated page so that it uses the A3 format? -- Skafti
