Displaying Visio 2003 diagrams in Word 2003 by means of SharePoint RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have recently run into a situation where a user has embedded a Visio 2003 document in her Word 2003 document and uploaded it to our MOSS site. When you click on this uploaded Word document, you cannot see the diagram nor the headers in the document. As soon as you close the preview and go to an editing screen this behavior disappears and you can see both the header and the diagram. This behavior is consistent whether or not you have Visio installed.

    I heard that possibly a Visio viewer might be installed on the SharePoint server in order to alleviate this problem. Is this true, and if so is there instructions for this anywhere? I have only seen instructions for using a Visio viewer as part of a web part for viewing a Visio diagram in the browser and nothing in regards one imbedded in a Word doc delivered by SharePoint.
