Hi Ann,

I can't remember if it's true for 2010, but when I researched Visio
2007 I learned the big advantage of Pro was the ability to create
drawings automatically from external data sources.

Standard has always suited me fine. At my new gig our MS home user
program gives me a killer deal on Office, Visio Pro, and Project. Look
into similar purchase programs from your own company.

Cheers,

-Tony
