Click OK and you will be prompted to save the file. The file will then automatically open in Excel.



You can choose to disconnect wires here vs. on the drawing pages. You can select one or multiple wires in the list and click the Disconnect button and choose either From (Output) or To (Input):




Note: You should know that disconnecting wires here will not automatically disconnect the wires on existing drawings in Visio or AutoCAD, unless you have changed the following Project Setting to Yes:

This setting is set to No by default as it can cause delays when opening Visio and AutoCAD drawings while it scans for disconnected wires.


You can also manually run this function in Visio and AutoCAD via a right-click if you do not wish to change the setting above to Yes:
