Updates from #MSIgnite #Visio booth

Yesterday was the first proper day at MS Ignite Conference, and we had an extremely busy day on the Visio booth. There was a lot of interest in the Visio Online Preview and Visio on iPad that we had on show, and of course, the cool data linking features in Visio.

You may still be  able to sign up for the Visio on iPad Insider Program using this link. It requires a short survey, and you must be part of an organization. Also, there is more information about the Visio Online Preview using this link .

Running the VBA macros in my example documents

It was pointed out to me that the VBA code in the session documents that I have made available raise an error in pre-Visio 2016 versions. This is because the references for the Office type libraries need to be changed for earlier versions (sorry). This can be fixed easily by selecting ALT+F11 to open the VBA Editor interface, then opening the Tools / References dialog.

vba-project-references

Then all of the entries that show as missing need to be replaced with the 14.0 or 15.0 Type or Object Libraries on your system.

Then click OK, and the macros from these articles should then run:

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.
