Organisational Charts & Linked Data RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all,

    I've got a number (14) of large organisational charts (between 100 & 300 shapes in each chart) that are linked to data tables within a MS Access database. The organisational charts are produced at the end of each month, however due to the size and nature of the organisation, the data linked to the charts changes a fair bit each month. Changes include who is occupying a position, new positions being added to the hierarchy and existing positions being deleted from the hierarchy.

    What I'd like to know is if there is a way to setup the organisational charts and simply Refresh Linked Shapes and have the organisational chart pick up ALL changes to the data? At the moment the Refresh Linked Shapes function will update changes to existing positions (e.g. who is occupying the position) however it cannot reflect changes such as new positions being added to the structure and existing positions being deleted.

    N.B. I'm using Visio Standard 2003.

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
