Insert a PivotDiagram into any drawing

To show a PivotDiagram together with other information, such as a chart or graph, you can insert a PivotDiagram into any Microsoft Office Visio Professional 2007 drawing.

  1. Open the drawing that you want to insert a PivotDiagram into.

  2. On the Data menu, click Insert PivotDiagram.

  3. Follow the steps in the Data Selector Wizard.

    Specific Help is available for most wizard pages. To access Help, press F1 or click the help button Help .

    After you click Finish, the following three shapes appear on the drawing page:

    • A data legend containing information about the data source

    • A text box for the name of the PivotDiagram

    • The top node, which contains the imported data set

  4. Click the top node on the drawing page, and in the PivotDiagram window, under Add Category, click the category (usually a column in your data source) by which you want to group your data.

    To further expand the new subnodes to expose other levels, click the node that you want to expand and repeat step 3.

    Note: You may need to maximize the PivotDiagram window to see all of the features.
