What is shape data?: Advanced Visio: Working with Data

Visio MVP Scott Helmers introduces the Shape Data window and explores the data types that Visio can store in shapes and in a page. Learn about storing text, numeric, date, duration, currency, list, and Boolean data. See a quick overview of the built-in Inventory report that is available in all Visio diagrams. Finally, this online video demonstrates that shapes don’t live in isolation: The data in one object can affect another. Watch as the appearance of a Visio shape is altered, not by data contained in the shape, but by the value of a data field in the page on which the shape resides.
