Title: Paste special Excel; Visio Security Notice
Post by: oxmo on October 28, 2016, 09:12:26 AM
Good morning all,

I've been lurking this forum for a long time now and was always able to find someone else with the same problem, but not this time.
At work we use Excel to make tables that we then copy and paste special in Visio.
After this is done, we are no longer able to modify fonts of the Visio drawing or modify the Design\Theme because we get a pop-up window.
I'm not talking about the font of the Excel table, but fonts in Visio (Ctrl+2).
We get a pop-up window:
Microsoft Office has identified a potential security concern.
This file (0) contains links to other files.
Then I have 2 button options "Update Links" or "Cancel"
Both buttons basically does the same thing, nothing, as far as I know.
We get the same pop-up message when we save the file or when we open a file that contains a paste special link to Excel.
So here's more details:

Thank you for your time!

I am having the exact same problem and have done a lot of research into it with NO results. Anything new discovered?

I don't have any of those Visio versions,cos cannot directly address this issue.  But, I am wondering if this might be a work-around...Visio ought to let you create an Excel file, once that's created, try a copy paste of the contents from your original file.  That is, don't paste the file, but rather, a copy of the cells from that file.

Just quick thought.
