I'm guessing there is a tool somewhere that will take a set of data from 
a database and present it like a spreadsheet for import/export of 
updates. Anyone have a pointer?

Is anyone doing anything fancy like exporting their Visio to CSV some 
other sort for inclusion into a database as meta data? (for viewing one 
would grab the data and then ask Visio to render it)
