Importing Information from Other Programs

Just as there are many ways to display Visio information in other applications, there are several methods for bringing data in. Which method should you use?

  • If you think you’ll need to edit the original file later, OLE is a good choice, but your computer must include the application in which the file was created.

  • If you want to include an image but don’t plan to do anything more than resize or rotate it, export the image from another program in a graphic format that Visio can import. Graphic files that you import without OLE take up less space in the Visio drawing file.
