Visio Pro Org Chart, VBA,  Update Page from External Data

Last Modified: 2012-05-08

I have an external data source that I need to use to update a Visio page. I can do what I need manually, but I would like to write the VBA code to automate the process.

In the external data window at the bottom on the Visio page, I have the followiing column headings. (Name, Department, Position, Costcenter.....ect)

I would like to create some code, where I select all rows where the department is the same (the department=x) and then drop those rows onto blank page with the same department name. The blank page has apready been created.

If it helps, we are using custom Visio shapes, with custom shape data. The shape data does match the external data's columns headings.

Im pretty much lost with how to even start this.

Many  thanks
