Visio 2002 Standard represents the first significant update of this well-respected diagramming and charting software since it joined the Microsoft stable. The Visio product suite now comprises two members, with 2002 Standard and 2002 Professional (which integrates the previous Visio Technical edition).

A wealth of new features awaits, with Office XP integration high on the agenda. True, Visio always worked well with Office, but now you'll find XP menus, a new task pane, Auto-Recover, Office Search, and application error reporting added to the list. Note that it also uses Microsoft's new XP registration feature and will stop working after 10 goes if you haven't entered an activation code.

A Drawing Type Selector gets you off the starting block and lets you choose diagram styles ranging from building plans, Web site diagrams, and process engineering to databases, flow charts, and physical or logical network maps. Organizational charts are much improved and a wizard helps to create new charts or import existing information from TXT and XLS formats or ODBC-compliant data sources. The curved-wall tool makes creating building layouts more fun, and you can import and export drawings in standard CAD file formats. Pictures can also be imported directly from a scanner or camera.

If you're serious about your charts and diagrams, then Visio 2002 Standard has everything you could possibly need, while the new interface makes it even easier to use. --Dave Mitchell
