I'm using Visio from ASP.NET to generate organizational charts. I create a text file (tab delimited) and, based on a template and a stencil I create the chart. It works just fine. Now what is the problem: in one of the column I have alot of text (a list of 10-50 names separated by comma) and I want to split it on new rows based on a separator. After I have the organizational chart I can add manualy carrige return (simply by hitting Enter) and I'm shure that it can be done also automaticaly. Is there something is the ShapeSheet that I can use? Or do you know some caracter that can be interpreted as an ENTER (CR) if I generate my chart based on a text file?
