Linking data to group of shapes
« on: September 17, 2019, 12:29:07 AM »
Hi All,
I am working on a drawing that has data linked to SQL.
I can link individual shapes to the data, in this case there are multiple shapes linked to a single row of data.
What I would like to do is to group the shapes into 1 single object and then only drag the data to the object to link all of the shapes inside.
Is this possible?

can someone point me in the right direction to get this working?


Thanks
Darren

Thanks Yacine,
I watched the video and downloaded the macro for doing this.
I must say it worked fantastically

Thanks again for your help
