Windows 7: Visio 2010 Newbie

Visio 2010 Newbie

Hello folks.

Okay, this might be really simple, or incredibly difficult. I'll explain the best I can.

I have a background picture of an office map in Visio 2010. Out of courtesy to my office, I want to make a map that will update in accordance to the information listed on an Access Database.

Basically, I want to insert text boxes onto the map picture and have them display information on/in an Access Database file that contains information about the computer at that particular location in the office. The Access Database is very basic (names, phone numbers, etc) and the pictures don't have to be super complex.

Any ideas/easy ways to do this? I'm a complete newbie when it comes to Visio but I've been playing around with it for a little while so I know how to do some things.
