Organisation Chart

1.I am creating an organisation chart, how do I resize all the boxes to be the same size.

2.Is there a quick way of checking that all the boxes have the same distance between them.

RE: Organisation Chart

Hello Jenny,

Hope you enjoyed your Microsoft Visio course with BEST Training.
Thank you for your question regarding size and position.

The size issue is easy, just multi select all the shapes you want to resize (Shift+Click each shape), then display the Size and Position window, found in the View menu. Type in the width and height.

As for positions and evenly spaced shapes, multi select only the shapes you need to space out or align (do not select every shape!!).
From the Shape menu, choose the Align option or Distribute option.


I hope this resolves your question. If it has, please mark this question as resolved.

If you require further assistance, please reply to this post. Or perhaps you have another Microsoft Office question?

Have a great day.
Regards,

Mark
Microsoft Office Specialist Trainer

Visio tip:

Creating an organisation chart in Visio using Excel data

A quick and easy way to create an organisation chart by importing names and titles stored in list format in an Excel spreadsheet into Visio.

1. Select File, New, Organization Chart.

2. Start the Organization Chart Wizard.

3. At the first step of the wizard, select the 'Information that I enter using the wizard' option, and click Next.

4. At the second step of the wizard, select Excel, then type the name of the file.

5. Select Browse to choose the location you wish to save the file to, click Save, and then click Next.

6. Click OK - a Microsoft Office Excel workbook will open with column headings already entered for you.

7. Replace the sample text with the text you wish to appear in your organisation chart. By holding your cursor over each column heading, you should be able to view data entry tips.

8. Save the Excel file, then close Excel.

9. Proceed through the remaining steps in the wizard to create your organization chart from the data you entered into the Excel file.

Visio's organisation chart wizard will also recognise the following file formats (besides .xls):

- Microsoft Exchange Server Directory (Microsoft Exchange e-mail Address Book).

- Tab- or Comma-delimited text (.txt).

- Org Plus (.txt).

- Microsoft Office Access (.mdb) or any other file format for a database created in an Open Database Connectivity (ODBC)-compliant database application.
