Data Refresh is creating extra Data links for Shapes
« on: December 10, 2019, 03:56:55 PM »
I have 4 data sources linked to my visio: Workstations, Servers, Printers, Devices.

For some reason, when I use the built in Data --> Refresh Data to pull the latest from the DB, it is creating an extra link to another table for some objects.

For instance, I have Workstations A001.  I click refresh.  Now I have WorkstationA001 but it is linked to its proper row in the Workstation table, but also to a row in the Printers table and I can see the ShapeData for both in the workstation object with a Data--> Show Linked Row showing the 2 connections.

Any ideas?  Since it's happening with the Data menu option in Visio instead of running any of my custom code, I'm thinking its a bug?  It happens all the time, to the point that whenever I refresh, I have to then double check that there isn't any erroneous linkages.
