Is there a way to get me linked external data to pick up when I add new columns to the excel sheet? It is tracking changes in the columns that are showing up in Visio, but not seeing if I add new columns of information.

Thank you

    @Gourzong, Latiana "LT"
    Did you import the Excel workbooks into Visio file?
    If so, please go to Data > External Data group > Refresh All to check this issue.
    Here is an article "Tips and tricks for linking data", hope it could be helpful.

    Any error messages or misunderstanding, please let me know.
