Getting Data Shapes to Work with Custom Stencils
I imported a picture and saved it as a shape. Then I linked data from a SQL
database. I can get the data to show up in the Shape Date, but I can't get a
Data Graphic to appear.
Note that I can get Data Graphics to work with out of the box shapes in the
same drawing - just not the custom picture.
Tried in both Visio 2007 and 2010 Beta. What am I doing wrong?
Thanks in advance.

T...Multiple instances of product in one order.
For an example, I have been using MS Northwind example. One problem I have
run into is adding the same item twice in an order. I am keeping track of
time in my database. For instance, Project1 might be from 8:00AM to 12PM,
then Project2 from 12PM to 3PM, then Project1 again from 3PM to 5PM.
If you try to add the same product in the sample Northwind database, it
comes up with the same error. I know the reason it is coming up is because it
has to have its own primary key and cannot duplicate. How should I go around
this so I can add the same "product" in the same order?...Excel worksheet total up to show in another worksheet

I have 3 versions of Access on my developer machine (97,
2000 and XP). All were working fine until today.
While working in an XP project, Access bombed. It
indicated I should look for updates, which I did. The
Office Updates web site walked me through a few security
updates for XP, and then it attempted SP-3 for Office
2000. When the SP-3 update finishes, it searches for
further updates, and keeps coming up with SP-3, as if it
doesn't recognize that it was already installed.

Certainly. SQL Server is a client-server DBMS and the service often runs

...Data vanished, Large file seems empty
I opened Outlook this AM and it was as if I had never used
it. My created folders were gone, only the default folders
were there and they all were empty. I tried to open the
proper .pst file and found one with 91,360kb, but whether
I try to open it through Outlook/File/Open or simply
double-click the file from Windows Explorer I get the same
results: ghost-town Outlook, empty folders, etc., like I'd
never been there before.
Try running the Inbox Repair Tool against your .PST file to see if it finds
any errors. Search your drive for a file called scanpst.exe and run it.
