If you think of Microsoft Office Visio 2003 as a visual toolbox rather than merely diagramming software, you’ll begin to understand how flexible it can be. If you have a business problem that requires a graphical or visual answer, Visio might be able to help. Shapes, documents, and even the Visio user interface itself can be customized. Your custom solution can be as simple as a tweak to an existing shape that you save as a new master, or a more elaborate, interactive program that uses Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications 6.4 (VBA), which is built into Visio, or another programming language. Visio is a complete graphical development environment, or platform, that you can use to build visual solutions.
