Useful Visio stencil set for SQL Server 2005

I am putting this here for my own future reference.  There is a useful set of Visio stencils for SQL Server 2005 at Visio Toolbox.  Here is a link to the page that they are on, and a direct link to the .zip file.  These stencils appear to have actually been created by Microsoft directly, since the page is on a Microsoft website.

There is also a page on the site that shows how to work with Visio and SQL Server.  There are several videos and a couple of downloads.

So the shapes are up on http://sqlblog.com/blogs/jamie_thomson/archive/2010/02/03/visio-stencils-for-ssis.aspx

I’ve also started building up my own set.

http://www.bidn.com/blogs/MarkGStacey/bidn-blog/2675/visio-shapes-for-sql-2012-ssas-olap-tabular-master-data-services-and-data-quality-services-servers

It’s continually a work in progress, but I currently have:
Analysis Services (MultiDimensional)
Analysis Services (Tabular)
Data Quality Services
Master Data Services

These are icons I completely made up myself so *far* from official, but open for anyone to use if you need them. I’ll probably add SSIS and SSRS at some point as well. Feel free to leave a comment on my blog if there are ones you want
