I am using MS OneNote 2013 with Visio 2013. I would like to create a link from a page I have in OneNote to a specific tab in my Visio 2013 ,vsd file. This would allow me to update my Visio document and see the changes in OneNote when I return there.

Is this possible and where can I learn about this?


Thanks in advance for your assistance.

As a general rule you can link to a specific page in a Visio diagram by appending # and the page name to the end of a URL.

For example, embedding this link in Word (and presumably OneNote) will open a diagram:
file:///D:\My Documents\Experts Exchange-Linked In\Visio\pg.index test code.vsd

Embedding this link will open the same diagram to "Page-3":
file:///D:\My Documents\Experts Exchange-Linked In\Visio\pg.index test code.vsd#Page-3

Scott Possible a little more clarification would help me understand this process

The path to the file I am trying to link into is :
Q:\UC 3.9  Vouchers\_Final Design - Sprints,Screen and Documentation

The File I am trying to open is :
voucher_sprint_Task.vsd

The page I wish to open to is: Sprint Project Title Page

I tried this link:
 file:///Q:\UC 3.9  Vouchers\_Final Design - Sprints,Screen and Documentation\voucher_sprint_Task.vsd#Sprint Project Title Page

I placed this code on the Address line of the Links popup screen and clicked OK

This link was created in OneNote:
file:///Q:\UC 3.9  Vouchers\_Final Design - Sprints,Screen and Documentation\voucher_sprint_Task.vsd#Sprint Project Title Page


I placed this code on the Address line of the Links popup screen
When I click on the link displayed in one note I received the message "Unable to Open"

Have I got the Syntax correct?
I made need to refine the link text if the syntax is correct

Thanks for your assistance.

The problem may be the space characters; in some URL situations those need to be replaced by their ASCII equivalent, in this case %20. Try replacing each space with %20 and see whether that helps.

BTW, one easy way to replace the space characters is to have your web browser do it for you. Some browsers, Chrome for example, will convert spaces to %20 if you simply paste the URL into the address bar and press enter. Then just copy the modified URL from the address bar.

Scott,
     Inserting %20 in place of spaces in the link allowed it to work.

Thanks
