Use the Visio ShapeSheet

The Visio ShapeSheet is one of the most powerful features of the program - learning it can accelerate your productivity immensely.

Visio maintains a spreadsheet called a ShapeSheet for every shape and for the Visio diagram or page.  The cells in this spreadsheet determine the properties of every part of the shape or page, and you can use these cells to automate the diagram with VBA or simply to revise parameters or properties manually.  For more details on the ShapeSheet see the ShapeSheet update.
