    linking Visio diagrams

    Visio2000/WIn95/WOrd97
    How can I get MS Word to link to the 2nd page of a Visio diagram ?
    In Word, if I choose to insert a Visio drawing as an object and choose to link the diagram, I can only get the first page to display in the Word document.
    I am trying to create a Word doc which has access to both pages of a Visio drawing.

    Thanks
    Craig

    Re: linking Visio diagrams

    Sorry Craig, but I've never been able to figure it myself. (The same is also true of multi-tab Excel spreadsheets!).

    I usually resort to saving the page as a WMF and importing it that way - not very elegant, I know, but it works.

    Re: linking Visio diagrams

    In researching a an issue I have with hyperlinks in Visio I have tried something that should work for you. I run Visio 2000, Word 97 and Windows NT 4.

    Open the multipage visio file you want to link to (from Word). In visio, drop an object (on any page) and,
    1) Set the Address to the same visio file
    2) Set the Sub Address to , say, Page 2 of the visio file
    Press OK to complete the hyperlink

    Copy the object and in Word select Edit, Paste Link
    Save the Word file as an htm file.
    Right click on the object and select edit , hyperlink
    For me, the "Named location in file" said "Page-2" but the "Link to file or URl was empty"... so I used the browse button to reselect the visio file and confirmed with OK.

    When I floated the mouse over the "visio " object in the word htm file the pop up box listed the name of the visio file.
    When I clicked on the linked it went to page 2 of the visio file.

    I have tried keeping to Word doc in .doc format as was also able to link page 2 of the visio file, using "Named location in file" = Page-2

    If you manage to get this working for you the next issue you may encounter (which is where I am at) is making (relative) hyperlinks work between files different directories.
