Steven Chan
Senior Director

We are pleased to announce that Microsoft Office 2013  logoMicrosoft Office 2013 is certified with Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.2.  For details, see:

Certified combinations include Office running in 32-bit and 64-bit modes.

EBS 12.2 + Microsoft Office 2013 (32-bit)

Microsoft Office 2013 32-bit desktop version is certified for integration with Oracle E-Business Suite Releases 12.2.3 and 12.2.4 for the following desktop client operating systems:

  • Windows Vista 32-bit
  • Windows 7 32-bit & 64-bit
  • Windows 8.1 32-bit & 64-bit
EBS 12.2 + Microsoft Office 2013 (64-bit)

Microsoft Office 2013 64-bit desktop version is certified for integration with Oracle E-Business Suite 12.1.3 through a 64-bit techstack for the following desktop client operating systems:

  • Windows 7 64-bit
  • Windows 8.1 64-bit
How does the E-Business Suite work with Microsoft Office?

The Oracle E-Business Suite is comprised of several product families such as Financials, Supply Chain Management, Human Resources, and so on.  These product families group together collections of individual products.  Some of these products may be optionally integrated with one or more Microsoft Office components such as Excel, Word, and Projects. Individual E-Business Suite product teams have the option of building integrations between their products and one or more Microsoft Office components.  This is not mandatory.  Over forty E-Business Suite teams offer these kinds of Office integrations today. Examples of these integrations include:

  • HRMS Payroll integrations with Microsoft Excel
  • Supply Chain Management Contracts Core integration with Microsoft Word
  • Financials General Ledger (GL) integration with Microsoft Excel
  • Customer Relationship Management (CRM) Proposals integration with Microsoft Word
  • Web Application Desktop Integrator (Web ADI)
  • Desktop Integration Framework

Which Office versions are certified?

We explicitly tested the Office 2013 Professional edition with Oracle E-Business Suite.  We expect that the results of these certification tests apply equally to the following desktop-installed editions:

  • Home & Student 2013
  • Home & Business 2013
  • Standard 2013 
  • Professional 2013
  • Professional Plus 2013

Support implications: We will attempt to reproduce issues reported on these editions on our reference edition -- Office 2013 Professional.  Issues that cannot be reproduced will be handled on a case-by-case basis.  For example, issues that can only be reproduced on, say, Office Home & Student 2013 but cannot be reproduced on Office Professional 2013 will be handled on a case-by-case basis. 

We do not currently plan to certify the following editions with Oracle E-Business Suite:

  • SkyDrive-based documents
  • Office On Demand
  • Office Web Apps
  • Office 365
  • Office Home & Student RT

What about OpenOffice, StarOffice, LibreOffice?

We have no plans to certify the E-Business Suite with versions of OpenOffice, StarOffice, LibreOffice, or other equivalents.

    Hi Steven,

    We use Office 365 via a Citrix cliënt and encounter difficulties when generating Web Adi's with content.

    We have had a service request for this, but we want to know if and when this certification will be realized and out problems solved.

    Thanks in advance for your answer.

    Best Regards,

    Hi, Henny,

    I'm sorry that you're encountering issues with this.

    Our process for procuring development licences for Office 365 began years ago but was only completed this month. Amongst other complications, O365 development testing setups have Azure and MSAD prerequisites that required Oracle security reviews.

    We have not begun Office 365 testing with EBS yet. This is on our roadmap but not scheduled yet. I'll post updates here as soon as they're available.

    We are facing many difficulties because office 365 is not certified with EBS.
    We request you to take this on priority.

    Hi, Dnyaneshwar,

    You're posting on an article from 2014. We certified Office 365 with EBS in 2017. See:
