Hi Experts,

I am in the process of drawing a large database.

I have several spreadsheet with a grouping of tables like:

Table(s)A
Table(s)B
Table(s)C
etc...

Is it possible to click on a shape and it will automatically open the associated spreadsheet?

So like if group Table(s)A has a relationship with group Table(s)B?  That relationship would be in a shape and when clicked on it opens Table(s)B from Table(s)A and so on?

If you don't understand my question please say so thanks...

Please help and thanks...

Where would the 'associated spreadsheet' workbook filename be stated?  Within the MS-Visio Drawing or elsewhere?

You can definitely link to another page in the Visio diagram. In fact, with a little more work you can even link to a specific shape and set a zoom level so when someone following your hyperlink, the target shape will appear centered on the screen at the target zoom level.

This page contains written instructions for creating multiple types of hyperlinks. However, the video at the top of the page shows exactly what you asked about: how to link to another page in the same diagram.
