About this Course

In this course you will create custom elements and a custom template, represent external data as a drawing, and share your work with others.

This is the second course in the Microsoft Visio 2007 series. In Microsoft Office Visio Professional 2007: Level 1, you used the various templates to design and manage workflows and flowcharts. This course will build upon the knowledge gained, and enable you to work with many advanced features, including using the drawing tools, creating and working with custom stencils and templates, and sharing your Visio drawings with other applications.

Target Audience:

This course is designed for individuals who have an understanding of the basic workflow and the concept of end-to-end flowcharting.
