Add support for modifying Data Visualizer Excel files

Data Visualizer saves is a great time saver for building process maps. Unfortunately, the connection is permanently broken if you change the table name, worksheet, file name or file location. This prevents me from distributing the documents with the functionality intact.

        Hi Brian,

        Happy to let you know that we have introduced a Relink source data functionality that will help users fix the Excel connection when the Table or Excel file is renamed/ moved. This functionality will be available for Office Insiders in a couple of weeks and next to our Production users who are on the Monthly Channel.
