Subject: Visio diag automations

Hi All:

I have to create Visio diagrams for sales engagements for a webhosting
provider.  I use the same template based on our standard architecture but
vary the number/model/detail of the servers.  I am sick of the cut-n-paste
approach and am wondering who has automated some of these processes.  What I
would like to do is provide a standard data file (excel, csv, ect..) and
have that populate the detailed areas of the diagram.  My boss won't pay for
any software but I can use open source under XP or cygwin.
