Visio and HTML
How or what to use...

Msg#: 299 posted 7:21 pm on Feb 13, 2001 (gmt 0)


I have been given a Visio flowchart. Sort of large, around 300 step chart. They department that gave it to me had no clue that the .vsd file could not be a page unto itself (they even want me to hyperlink certain steps to go to another page/chart).

How can I make this display? Is the a format that I might convert it to. I guess they can use text but I know that would not be "acceptable" to them.

In Visio 5.0 you can export the file to an html page. This creates a gif image of the chart and embeds it into the page. You can then create an imagemap of this or in Visio you can creat a new visio web doc an have the pages link there and the export as html

Check your sticky mail for my contact info if you want me to convert it for ya. (in case you dont have 5.0)

You beat me Luckynh!!! Just got back out here. I will have to explore the linking effect, I did not make it that far. I have the products but thank you VERY much for the offer to convert it.

Tee Hee :)
quick draw McLucky..

Anyhow in visio there is a "create an new webpage" option that you can link the boxed to some_page.html.

You can also "spider" a site and create a flowchart from any url.

Visio is powerfull once you spend the time messin with it.

I love the "create flow-chat" from a url feature.

Let me know how it works out for ya

Hi Luckynh,

Well the linking feature is cool (right click). I think though image maps might be easier to maintain (?). They say that steps inside of the flow charts will change sporadicaly and will need updated frequently. IE: added processes and links to new VSDs. I was worried that I would be having to recreate the export each time. Guess I will find out in the next month the best approach.

Thanks again though,
