Visio master shapes での変更を自動的にBing Search results に更新。

Automate the process of entering data into Visio diagrams and keeping your diagrams up to date with the CData ODBC Driver for Bing Search. The driver surfaces Bing Search results as an ODBC data source that can be accessed by applications with built-in ODBC support like Microsoft Office. This article shows how to create a simple diagram to start brainstorming about Visio projects linked to Bing Search results.

Connect to Bing Search as an ODBC Data Source

If you have not already, first specify connection properties in an ODBC DSN (data source name). This is the last step of the driver installation. You can use the Microsoft ODBC Data Source Administrator to create and configure ODBC DSNs.

Link Bing Search Entities to Shapes

Follow the steps below to create a simple diagram that shows how to create shapes from your data, one of the ways to link Bing Search entities to shapes:

  1. Click Brainstorming Shapes and drag a main topic onto the drawing page. Enter VideoSearch as the text of the main topic.
  2. Click Topic.
  3. Select a row in the External Data window and drag it onto the drawing page.
  4. Right-click the Topic shape and click Data -> Edit Data Graphic.
  5. Click New Item.
  6. In the Data Field menu, select a column. In the Displayed As menu, select how to display them.
  7. Drag a few other Bing Search entities onto the drawing page and add association lines back to the main topic, VideoSearch. New topics have the same configuration: Numeric columns displayed in data bars stand out in contrast to other VideoSearch entities.

You can refresh your diagram from the Data tab, synchronizing your shapes with the external Bing Search results.
