I ran into this very issue on my last project. I have Office 2010 and Visio
2003 Professional. Everyone in the client's office who performed any kind of
analysis had Office 365 and Visio 2013.

As I see it, the main reason to get Visio 2013 is that it can link to Excel
in real-time. So if you make a change in an Excel spreadsheet and it is
linked to a Visio 2013 diagram, then the Visio data is automatically updated
as well.

Since Visio 2003 cannot read VSDX files, I just asked the engineers to save
their files as VSD for distribution to me.

Hope this helps.

Hello, TechWR-L-ers,

I'm purchasing a new machine for my contract work and am wondering which
version of Office and Visio I want to get for a Dell Windows 7 Pro (64-bit)
machine.

I've used Office 2010 for the last 18 months, and think it a nice
improvement over 2007. But I haven't used 2013 and so don't know if it's
pretty much the same, has new (desirable) features, is geared more to
Windows 10 users, or what?

I do know that Visio 2013 has a new filetype, VSDX, that cannot be opened by
Visio 2010. You have to (in Visio 2013) save it as VSD, or you can
installing the Visio Compatibility Pack to get the 2010 SP2, which can then
open the VSDX file. But I don't know if there are other material differences
in how Visio 2010 and 2013 operate?

Looking to hear about your experience, and for your advice, -Monique
