Trouble applying data set to other shapes #2


I posted this earlier, but it may not have been sent.  So I am sending 
it again.

I have put together a data set for one of the objects in my Visio 2007 
Professional drawing.  For simplicity, let's say that the shape is a circle.

I then want to apply the same data fields to another shape that's 
already on my drawing.  Let's say that this other shape, that does not 
yet have a data set attached to it, is a square.

So here is what I am doing, but apparently I am making a mistake somewhere:

I click on the circle and look in the Shape Data Sets window, and I see 
the name of my shape data set.  (Let's pretend that I named this data 
set 'xyz'.)  I click on 'xyz'; I click on the radio button that says 
'Apply checked shape data sets to: "Shapes selected in drawing"'; I 
uncheck 'Remove existing data sets'.

Then I go to the square, to which I want to apply data set 'xyz', and I 
click on 'Apply'.

So I go to the Shape Data window, expecting to see 'xyz' and all of its 
data fields.  Instead, however, the window is empty.  Data set 'xyz' has 
not been applied.  I have the opportunity to establish a new data set, 
but I don't want to do that.  I already have a data set called 'xyz', 
but I can't seem to get 'xyz' attached to additional shapes.

I would appreciate any help.

Thank you.

2 Qs re W2007 Styles, AutoCorrect
Q1: How do I delete styles that I've made? I don't mean delete from a document: I mean delete from the system. E.g. when I open a new document, and expand the Styles drop down list (click in lower right-hand corner of Styles group), old unwanted styles appear on the list. I delete them (I've tried deleting them directly from the list and from the Manage Styles window), but that only deletes them from that document: I open a new document and there they are again. I don't want to hide them, I want to delete them. Q2: Is there a way to work directly with the dic...

Re-set picture property for each continuous form
I'm sure this will have been asked before: I need to change the picture property of an image control on each generation of a continuous form. Basically, I am creating a list, each row of which is one generation of a continuous form, and want an icon alongside each row which relates to the content of the row. Unlike reports, there is no OnFormat event for the detail section of a form. I need to use a form and not a report as I want interactivity - effectively inline edit. Any ideas? One of many solutions.
