Consider the following scenario. You create a Pivot Diagram drawing in Microsoft Office Visio 2007. You open this drawing in Microsoft Office Visio 2003. Then, you try to delete a drawing component, such as the "Pivot Title" component or the "Pivot Info" component. In this scenario, the component is not deleted. Additionally, you receive the following error message:
Shape protection and/or layer properties prevent complete execution of this command.
This behavior occurs because the From deletion protection property is applied to some components in a Visio 2007 Pivot Diagram drawing.
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.
Visio could not perform the selected action because the current PivotDiagram is not valid.
