Video: Welcome

Hi and welcome to Microsoft Office Visio 2007. I am David Rivers and I am glad you could join me. We're going to be covering the basic to intermediate functions of Visio 2007 in this title. If you've got the premium subscription or you've got this title on CD, great, you've got the Exercise Files that I am going to be using so you can follow along with me at your own pace. Now if you don't have a premium subscription or you don't have the CD, no worries, you can still learn by sitting back and just watching. So let's get started.
