    Compatibility V5, V2000 and soon V2002??

    Does anyone have any insite about the compatibility of the new Visio products and also the upgrade path. <img src=/S/help.gif border=0 alt=help width=23 height=15> I am running Visio 5 Professional SR-C and today I discovered that Visio 2002 is about to be released, at least in beta. So, I sit here and wonder if I have to upgrade to V2000 and then to V2002, or can I go from V5 to V2002? The other question of course is whether or not there is any reason to upgrade at all? Any insight, thoughts, that anyone has on this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks. <img src=/S/cheers.gif border=0 alt=cheers width=30 height=16>

    I haven't seen the beta of 2002, but I work with Visio 2000 and it was definitely an improvement over version 5 except for one thing--they took forward engineering of a database out of the Professional version (where it was in 5 and earlier) and put it only in the pricey Enterprise version in 2000. I assume this will hold true of 2002 as well. The new one will be the first real Microsoft version of Visio, so it should have a few new bells and whistles not provided in 2000 SR-1.

    Thanks. Trust Microsoft to fiddle with a good product... <img src=/S/shocked.gif border=0 alt=shocked width=15 height=15> <img src=/S/shrug.gif border=0 alt=shrug width=39 height=15>

    If Visio 5 does everything you need, stick with it. Visio 2000 and 2002 are bigger, load MUCH slower, save slower, etc., etc., etc. Plus, you'd have to pay for those features, eh?
