From my experience, No....there is a "database import" function that allows you to create Visio entities based on a current database. But to the best of my knowledge, you can't go the other way in which you create an Access Db based on a Visio ERD. Although I always thought this was possible, I have yet to find a way to do it.

Perhaps someone here knows how.  I would also suggest you re-post this question in the Database (i.e. Ms Access) section to get more direct help.

I'll also take another look to see if it's possible.

It is possible using "Microsoft Office Visio for Enterprise Architects". I was trying with "Microsoft Office Visio 2007". Thanks for the support. I would request the admin to refund the points

Since you seem to have figure it out. Can you elaborate on how to get it done. Is "Microsoft Office Visio for Enterprise Architects" another software or a feature in Visio?

With Veeam Explorer for Microsoft Exchange you can choose the Exchange Servers and restore points you’re interested in, and Veeam Explorer will present the contents of those mailbox stores for browsing, searching and exporting.

It is possible using "Microsoft Office Visio for Enterprise Architects". Go to database-update there you get options to connect to db and update.
