I am struggling to find what should be a very simple feature. I am building a data analytics flowchart and need to use some Microsoft Access icons/shapes to indicate where the data comes from and what format it is in. I have a Microsoft Databases and Analytics Stencil (.vssx) but for some reason it doesn't contain a Microsoft Access shape. I need one with the 4 connector points, so I can't just use some random icon image. Does anyone know where I can get this shape?

Come to think of it, I am also looking for file type shapes, like xlsx, CSV etc.

You can use any image and add the connection points yourself!

This guy shows how to add connection points (Connection point tool, Ctrl + Click):

My old video gives a good overview of connecting options, for a good solid understanding of the whole connecting picture:
