Set data in multiple selections

I created a master shape where some fields are able to be set at once in a multiple selection (see attached file e.g. Labels) but some of them couldnt be set in a multiple selection (Amounts or Source fields)

Could somebody explain me why ? Is it because of the formula to hide the data cells?

Thanks for your help,

Please look at this picture! In these cells used GUARD function, which protect cell's value!


These are just the Headlines.. I am talking about the A1-10, S1-10,L1-10 and so on...


No problem here. I could modify the As and Ss.


Maybe to clarify:

- Select both shapes
- See Shape Data Window
- Value for Type1 could be set (marked green on screenshot)
- Value under Amounts could be edited, but doesn't change the shape data (marked red on screenshot)

Visio seems to have a problem with your dynamic Label.
Prop.S1.Label = "Source "&Prop.T2 -> Not working
Prop.S1.Label = "Source "&"1" -> Not working
Prop.S1.Label = "Source 1" -> Working


yeah that seems to be the case.. Then i think there is no solution for me on that case (exept for Labeling the fields static) :(

You could obtain dynamic labels using SETF / GetRef without formulas in the label cell:
User.Test = SETF(GetRef(Prop.S1.Label),"""LabelName""")
or, in your case:
User.Test = SETF(GetRef(Prop.S1.Label),"""Source "&Prop.T2&"""")

Usually i use trick, add new row in User-defined cell and use formula like:
IF(Prop.T1.Invisible,SETF(GetRef(Prop.A1),"Source "&Prop.T1),SETF(GetRef(Prop.A1),""))
Just as result
