Importing Organizational Data to Create a Chart

Most companies store employee data electronically in a human resources database. You can save time by using the Organization Chart Wizard to import your employee information and generate an organization chart, as Figure 10-6 shows. Visio can import from any ODBC-compliant data source (Microsoft SQL Server, for example), Microsoft Exchange Server, Microsoft Office Excel 2003, and text files. You can also use the wizard to set up an Excel or text file with employee information, and then import it.

Figure 10-6. The Organization Chart Wizard can generate a multiple-page chart from a variety of data sources, including Excel.
