Visualizing Information the Smart (Diagram) Way

Those of you who are attending the Visio Conference in Redmond this week will know that I am presenting in the developer track.  I am demonstrating some automation examples for building organization charts from SQL Server AdventureWorks database (slightly enhanced) in Visio 2007 Professional, without using the Org Chart Wizard.

This means that you have far more flexibility with the diagram layout, and it demonstrates Link Data to Shapes, Data Graphics and Pivot Diagrams.

The example stencil which includes all of the VBA samples used is attached to this post, along with the PowerPoint slideshow, and the SQL Server scripts to enhance the AdventureWorks database.

Things that Should be Easy

Every so often (too often in the IT industry) I encounter things that should have been very easy to do but turned out to be far too complicated. My favorite topics include SharePoint, .Net development, and software architecture, especially distributed systems.
