Visio Connector for Project/EPM/SPS


A new tool (including source code) has been posted on GotDotNet: the Visio Connector for Project/EPM/SPS. This is useful by itself but also provides a great way to learn about connecting Visio with some of the most popular data sources out there. It can be used as a starting point for your own projects.

  • Generate project plans in MS-Project from a Visio-based WBS (Work Breakdown Structure) diagram
  • Report the status of the tasks from Microsoft Project Plan stored locally or in a project server
  • Generate a portfolio view in Visio from Microsoft Project Server.
  • Generate Visio process flow diagram (With Critical path view) from MS Project plan through MS Project Add-Ins.

    I installed this and could not get it to work.

    Environment:

    – VPC 5.3.582.27

    – Project Server 2003 1.0.5614

    I am going to bring the VPC up to SP2 and try again.

    Regards
