How to save Visio drawings with hyperlinks to SharePoint

I have created a series of roadmaps in Visio with each roadmap on a seperate TAB.  I have created a set of hyperlinks that allows a user to quickly shift between tabs.  This works fine if I save as pdf however when I publish to Sharepoint the Hyperlinks no longer work.  I can still navigate using the "go to" pane on the left but would like users to be able to click on the hyperlink to move between pages.

When you say that you "publish to Sharepoint" do you mean that you are using Visio's Save as web page function then moving the results to Sharepoint? Or are you doing something else?

Using Save as web page should preserve all the hyperlinks...

Hi There

The original visio is in a SharePoint teamsite and I am using the save as web page to save the visio as a web document iin the same teamsite.  When I click on any link it comes back with a blank page.

Do you have a copy of the Firefox web browser? Even though Firefox doesn't display the left navigation pane, it does display the destination URL in the status line at the bottom of the browser window (IE does not do this).

It would be helpful to know that URL is associated with the link to another page. Can you upload a screen shot of the Firefox status line when you are hovering over a shape containing a link to another page? I've attached a sample below for web pages saved to my hard drive (not to Sharepoint).

Hi There
I found the problem, it is an issue between Visio and IE 7 that I had to edit the html page to make the hyperlinks work
