When converting a Visio diagram that contains external references to data (in this case an Excel spreadsheet) to a PDF file, the resulting PDF does not display the stored data values, but rather a text placeholder “Abc”.
I don’t have the spreadsheet referenced in this Visio document, but exporting to PDF using Visio I get the “stock” or “last retrieved” text values on the diagram. When exporting with Aspose, I get incorrect placeholder text.
See the image DataDrivenMissingData.png in the attached zip file for a screenshot of the differences between the two PDF files.
The source document Application Architecture Pivot diagrams_2016FromTemplate.vsdx and the Apsose created PDF file, 003_Application Architecture Pivot diagrams_2016FromTemplate.pdf, are also included in the attached zip file.

I am using Aspose.Diagram 19.2.
