How can I Display Visio Drawing?

Hello,

I have a database with customer information. I would like to add a
button
that will dynamically open a visio diagram of their network based on
the
customer name.

For example if ABCCo has a visio diagram when you open the form with
the
product details you will be able to click on a button that will open
thier
Visio diagram.

I have tried to do this with the CreateObject (visio.application), but
I
would rather have the visio document embedded in a form so that all
viewing
is done in Access. The Diagram does not have to be editable, just
viewable.

I have also tried dragging and dropping the visio diagram (this does
not
allow the dynamic population I would like) and the size is
enormous...Is
there a way to make the visio diagram strech and shrink to whatever
size the
form is?

What I would do is name the visio diagram [Customer].vsd so the same
form
would be opening, but Access would dynamically populate the form with
the
correct Visio diagram.

Also, not all customers provide a visio diagram . Is it possible to
make the
button visible only when a matching diagram is present.

Any help would be appreciated.
thanks,
Jessie

One method: Print the Visio diagram to a PDF file then place a
hyperlink to the file on a button or label. We use this approach
extensively for displaying system functionality diagrams to the user.
Of course the user can PRINT such diagrams as well as display them on
their screen.
