I would like to know two things:
1. Is there any flowchart convertor tool that converts visio flowchart data to excel sheet ?

2. Any good and efficient code review tool for java applications.

Thanks in advance.

1) Excel? Visio is graphical and Excel is tabular. What are you looking for Excel to contain?

2) There's already a discussion going about your code review tool. Let's continue all discussion about that in the code review tool thread to make it easy to follow.

Thank you for the reply.
I have flowcharts in visio.I need some kind of tool that helps me to capture flowchart data.
I want this to prepare dataset and to avoid wasting time and effort by doing it manually.
My requirement would be capturing flowchart data and converting into dataset.Is there any tool that will make my work easy?
Thanks in advance.

Nobody here understands what "data" is in the flowcharts that could be put into Excel. If you let us know what the data is, and what form it's in within Visio, maybe we could help.

With data i mean the text in the flowchart components.
For e.g in the decision box there can be a text like : is greater than 0?
I need this text to be extracted and saved in excel.
Not necessarily Visio,if there is any flowcharting tool that provides the facility of extracting text of flowchart in excel, it would be of great help

The essence of a flowchart is its two-dimensional structure. Just capturing the contents of the boxes and labels would be discarding the most fundamental reason for even having a flowchart.

Which is why no one here understands what you want. And why you're not going to find a program to do it.

I could cook something up in VBA that could walk a Visio diagram, enumerate all the objects in it and dump their text values via COM/OLE to Excel. But I'd have absolutely no reason to want to.
