How do I change the width of a Data Graphic in Visio 2010?

After having used Visio for a number of years, I'm finally learning how to use it the 'right' way.

I'm trying to create a network diagram, using data from a spreadsheet to fill Data Graphics for the Shapes (eg: ServerName, IP Address, CPU, RAM etc).  Only problem is, that the data graphic width seems to be set at a set amount, and I haven't yet been able to crack how to change it.  This results in the likes of the IP address being broken up and split across two lines instead of just the one.

How do you change the width of a Data Graphic in Visio 2010?

Many of the Microsoft provided data graphics include a parameter to change the width. See the dialog box below (you'll have to scroll down in the list of parameters to find width).

The images below show the width with three different settings. BTW, You can enter fractional values. I found that 1.5 worked best for this data graphic and the IP address.

Excellent!  I posted the question about 2 days ago, and had since found the same answer through playing around for it.
Thought I'd keep teh question around to give someone some points though, and you've definitely provided a good solution! Cheers!

That's very generous of you. And by leaving the question here rather than canceling it you've helped someone in the future who has the same problem.

Thanks,
