David has authored these guides, white papers, handbooks, and other documents exclusively for your use. These copyrighted documents are made available for your use at your desk to assist you in maximising your investment in Visio and assisting you in becoming theh most proficient and productive Visio professional possible. 


This 118 page, fully illustrated, Organizational Diagramming Handbook is written for both Visio 2007 and Visio 2010. It covers absolutely every aspect of creating, maintaining, and publishing Visio Organizational Diagrammes. It is, and will be, your trusted ally and desktop mentor when it comes to utilizing the Visio In-Box Organizational Diagramming Solution.

 

This primer on the creation and use of Visio 2007 Professional and Visio 2010 Professional / Premium Pivot Diagrams is a "soup to nuts" guide to optimal use of the Visio analalog to Microsoft Excel Pivot Tables without all of the headache of the Excel-based set-up and configuration.
 
 
 

Visio 2007 Professional and Visio 2010 Professional / Premium provide the ability to display Data Graphics, which provide visual key performance indicators associated with the Shape Data fields on any requested SmartShape. However the pallette of available Text Callouts, Data Bars, and Icon Sets is actually rather limited (and quite frankly, there are some Icon Sets which would NEVER be used in a business enterprise). This primer on the creation and application of Custom Designed Data Graphics will assist you in designing your own industry or corporate specific Data Graphics and providing a greatly enhanced level of professionalism to your data-connected diagrammes.

Beginning with Visio 2007 Professional Edition, and continuing with Visio 2010 Professional and Premium Editions, Visio provides not only the ability to connect to external data sources, but moreover, refresh the data in the Visio diagram populated from those data sources with a single click of a Refresh Button on the Data Tab of the Visio Ribbon. This codde sample instructs you in the creation of a simple bit of automation code that will accomplish this same refresh automatically each time the diagram is opened. This will ensure that the connected data is properly synced every time that you begin use of the Visio diagramme.
 
 
 
 
Visio 2007 and Visio 2010/2013 Obtain Last Editor Sample Automation Code
As a native function Visio utilises "Text Fields" similar to those found in Microsoft Word, however the Visio Text Fields are like Word's on steroids. Visio can provide information such as the date and time of the last edit of a Visio diagramme. That being said, Visio does not natively track the name of the person who last edited the diagramme. This code sample teaches you how to implement this functionality in an easy to understand, even easire to create small snippet of code.
