To work around this behavior, remove the From deletion
protection property when you try to delete a protected component. To do this, follow these steps:
- Open the drawing in Visio 2003.
- Right-click the component, point to Format, and then click Protection.
- Click to clear the From deletion check box.
- Click OK to close the Protection dialog box.
If you delete any of the shapes of the Pivot Diagram drawing in Microsoft Office Visio 2003, the drawing may not function as expected in Visio 2007. For example, if you try to expand the nodes of the Pivot Diagram drawing, you receive the following error message:
Visio could not perform the selected action because the current PivotDiagram is not valid.
