I am a brand new Visio user.

I have a Visio 2007 document that has a Topology (diagram) and associated shape data for each of the shapes (servers, desktops, etc) .

How do I print out the Topology AND the shape data please?

Thank you,  Marc

The answer generally requires two steps:

1) You can print any Visio diagram merely by selecting File>Print from the main menu. If you want to adjust how the logical page, i.e., the drawing page, prints on your printer paper, select File>Page Setup first and use the Print Setup and Page Size tabs.

2) The easiest way to print shape data is to use Visio's reporting capability. Select Data>Reports from the main menu. You're probably better off starting with one of the predefined reports (there should be at least one) to see what it produces. (You'll notice that you can send the report output to a web page, to Excel, to XML or you can drop the report onto the Visio drawing page.) To modify one of the existing reports, select the report name, then click the Modify button instead of the Run button.

Regards,
Scott

Hi Scott,

So there is no way to print the diagram and the corresponding shape date onto the same page?

Thank you,

Marc

If you run a report and choose "Visio shape" as the output type, Visio will drop the report output directly onto the drawing page as just another shape. You can then position it wherever you'd like and print the page.
