Importing Visio ERD

I have been trying to import a Visio ERD diagram into VP for UML but I have a problem.

Visio has auto-generated an ERD diagram from a database. I save this diagram as a drawing (*.vdx) and import it by using File -> Import -> Visio. VP for UML imports the diagram but datatypes are not imported. They are all set to “NUMBER”. Is this a bug or do I have to use another import function? Or do have to save the diagram from visio in another format than a drawing?
