CAUSE
The sample diagram "SamplePID1.vsd" is part of the Process Engineering project in the Visio\Samples\Process Engineering\Process Engineering Project folder. You receive the error message if you start the file separately from the Process Engineering project. This is because the project, not the file, contains the component data.

RESOLUTION
To generate a valve list, open the sample Process Engineering project first.

To generate a valve list form from the SamplePID1.vsd diagram:

Open Sample Project.vsd in the Visio\Samples\Process Engineering\Process Engineering Project folder.
In the Project Explorer, double-click samplePID1.
On the Process Engineering menu, point to Lists, and then click Generate Lists.
