Web pages don't have that degree of granularity for destinations,
there is just the page destination or the name destination, there is
no mechanism to link to a part of an image.

Hi, I decided to burst as many brain cells as I can working with shapes.
Its working. ;)
I am trying to add "Oval" shapes (msoShapeOval) tn image on a worksheet, the
problem I am having difficulties with is naming the shape or renaming the
shape as it is created.
I want to start with "Oval 1" for the First shape and continu counting, Oval
2, Oval 3, etc. What I get is what seems to be a random starting shape name
such as "Oval 6" when there are no shapes other than a picture shape on the
sheet or in the entire workbook.

Using XP, Visio 2003. In an org chart, using the Org Chart stencil, why is
it that certain shapes do not fall into place? For example, I've created an
org chart with one executive, 3 managers, etc. and when I drag an assistant
shape onto one of the managers, it goes right in the middle, on top of any
shape that's there.
I have created a drawing of our server racks. I have also gone into the
custom properties of the shapes as they are laid out in the racks and I have
entered the server names, serial numbers, BIOS versions, etc. of each shape
and I want to display it in a table on a master list sheet. How do I do
I know the data is usable, I just don't know how to effectively display it.
Have you considered starting with Tools => Reports => New???

For my purposes, I'd like to use the cross functional shape to build up
swimlanes that don't change no mater how or what kind of shape is dropped on
them. Using a background page is somewhat inconvenient for my pupose.
Can you tell me how to kill the code or events that cause the
cross-functional shape to interact with other shapes while leaving its other
behaviour intact? (in particular, I don't want other shapes to become
attached to a lane nor do I want the lane to change its width)
Thanks in advance!

I would like to modify some shapes that I've created to have selectable
views. Is there a good reference that indicates how to do this? I am making
a set of shapes to create audio components for rack mounting. For each
component, I would like to switch between front and rear views. This would
be similar to the electrical symbols, e.g., a resistor, that allows you to
select different views for fixed or variable resistance.

There will be some new shapes with Visio 2007, but there are a number of
sources on the web for shapes. I have tried to create a catalogue of what I
have found at http://visio.mvps.org/3rdparty.htm.

with the shape selected, menu Window -> Show Shapesheet
in the Custom Properties section (called Shape Data in Visio 2007) you
will see your custom data, the Value cell, edit this so instead of
containing, say, "123", make it Guard("123").

Is their any way in viso to choose all shapes that is connected to a Shape
by line connector
You can walk the shapes collection to find the line connectors and then walk
the line connectors connection collections (there is a from and a to
collection) to find out who they are connected to.
If you want to select the shapes connected to a line, you can select a line
and run VBA code to change the selection to the shapes connected to the line
using the lines connection collections.

I'm trying to build a chart that is 12 columns, by 18 rows.

The Feature Comparison shape is really a grouped shape that contains 10 rows

properties you set ('Set Fields...').
So if you want to extend this you can either edit the shape and add more
rows and columns to the group (bear in mind that each ...
