Microsoft Office 2010 (32-Bit) Certified with E-Business Suite

ms_office_logo.png

[Editor Jan. 17, 2013 update: Removed outdated references to Open Office.  We have no plans to certify the E-Business Suite with Open Office.]

Microsoft Office 2010 (32-Bit) is certified for integration with Oracle E-Business Suite 11i and Release 12 with the following desktop client operating systems:

  • Windows XP
  • Windows Vista
  • Windows 7 32-bit
  • Windows 7 64-bit
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 available 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
Which Office versions are certified?

We explicitly tested Microsoft Office 2010 Professional Edition with Oracle E-Business Suite.  We expect that our certification tests also apply to:
  • Home and Student Edition
  • Home and Business Edition
  • Standard Edition
  • Professional Academic Edition
  • Professional Plus Edition
We have no plans to certify the following editions with Oracle E-Business Suite:
  • Office Web Apps
  • Starter Edition
  • Mac Edition
  • Office Mobile
I would not expect the results of our certification with Office 2010 Professional Edition to apply to the above four editions.

How are these integrations supported?

You can log Service Requests against the E-Business Suite product that you're trying to integrate with Microsoft Office. 

For example, you might be trying to take advantage of CRM Marketing (AMS) 12.1.2's integration with Excel 2010.  To get support, you can log an SR against CRM Marketing directly. 

The Support team for that product will help you diagnose and resolve the problem.  If the issue is isolated to a Microsoft product, then it may be necessary to log a corresponding support ticket with Microsoft, as well.

What about 64-bit Office?

Microsoft Office 2010 is available in both 32-bit and 64-bit editions. The 64-bit version is available for a subset of Microsoft's supported operating systems. 

Due to a number of technology issues Oracle E-Business Suite is currently certified against the Microsoft Office 2010 32-bit edition only.  We intend to certify Office 64-bit components with the E-Business Suite; stay tuned for more details on this front.

Is Oracle BI Publisher 10.2.3.2.0 Template Builder for Word certified with Office 2010?

Posted by Chris Bittakis on December 16, 2010 at 02:55 AM PST #

Chris,

I would assume this to be true, but I don't have much visibility into BI Publisher certification matrices. Your best bet would be to log a formal Service Request via My Oracle Support (formerly Metalink) to get one of our BI Publisher specialists engaged.

Where can I find an integration module for Oracle Projects with MS Projects 2010 ?

Posted by guest on November 15, 2011 at 09:44 PM PST #

Guest,

I think they have some kind of Microsoft Projects integration, but I'm afraid that I'm not very familiar with Oracle Projects to comment.

Your best bet would be to log a formal Service Request via My Oracle Support (formerly Metalink) to get one of our Projects specialists engaged.

Will there be any special certification of testing of new Service Packs released for Office products?

Office 2010 SP1 is released, wondering what certification path or testing is in progress. Do expect compatibility patches to come along.

Thanks,

Tim

Posted by Tim Monday on March 13, 2012 at 10:21 AM PDT #

Tim,

We don't generally perform certification testing with Office Service Packs. These Service Packs are considered to be "paper certified" and supported with the E-Business Suite. Office Service Packs have historically been very benign in terms of compatibility impact with the E-Business Suite. We haven't seen any issues with historical updates for Office 2003 or 2007 to date, and I would be surprised if that changes with Office 2010 Service Packs.

Regards,
Steven

Good Morning,

Do you know if there is any update on the time lines for the 64 bit certification.

Currently running a R12 re-implementation and it appears we have users ahead of the tech curve.

Posted by Drew Geen on March 30, 2012 at 01:59 AM PDT #

Hi, Drew,

We're still working on this certification.

Oracle's Revenue Recognition rules prohibit us from discussing certification and release dates, but you're welcome to monitor or subscribe to this blog for updates.

Out of curiosity, do you know why some of your users require the 64-bit version instead of the 32-bit version?

Regards,
Steven

Posted by Steven Chan on March 30, 2012 at 05:42 AM PDT #

Steven,

Several of our users also use the 64 bit of MS Office 2010. This is because they all use 64 bit W7 OS. I would be keen to learn about this version certified as soon as it is.

Thank you,

Ketan

Steven,

This sounds great, but it doesn't work on the download to Word 2003 option in Contracts. I've had an Enhancement Request in for months regarding Word not working with contracts SR # is 3-1721523081, ER 10144386. Any ideas?

Posted by Judi Doolittle on September 13, 2012 at 03:46 PM PDT #

Hi, Judi,

It appears that your Service Request was closed in Nov. 2010, and that the associated ER was closed as "not an issue." According to the ER notes, all Word documents are created in Word 2003 XML format, which are readable and compatible with Word 2003 and 2007.

If you're still experiencing issues with this in your environment, please either reopen your Service Request or log a new one. You're welcome to let me know if it gets stuck in the Support process for some reason.

Regards,
Steven

I opened a new SR 3-6204121581 : N:C: Downloading Contract Terms in Word 2003 does not work when you have Word 2010

Response from SR:

Hello, Judi,

Thanks for opening a new Service Request. My apologies: some of the confusion was on my part; I was focussing on the Web ADI base certification with Office 2010 and not on the specific considerations for the Contracts product.

As your latest Service Request indicates, Contracts has a known exception for Word 2010; this is also documented in Note 1077728.1.

If you haven't already done so, I would recommend asking your Support engineer to share with you the enhancement request that's tracking the requirement to certify Contracts with Word 2010. I can also independently escalate this from my side in the Applications Technology Group, too, but the Contracts team will be the one responsible for completing this certification.

Regards,
Steven

Cathy,

We published an excellent blog article titled, "Six Options for Getting Help for E-Business Suite Issues." You can find the article at

https://blogs.oracle.com/stevenChan/entry/options_for_getting_ebs_help

I think you will find options there, including public forums, that may be of assistance to you.

Hi,

Hi, Edson,

We only certify the E-Business Suite with Microsoft Office. We have no plans to certify with other Office-compatible products (due to dependencies on proprietary Microsoft VBA APIs).

Steven

Hi,

Please let me know if MS Office 2010 is also certified with Discoverer 11g and ADI application in R12.1.3.

Thanks,
Parmod

Posted by guest on May 15, 2013 at 12:05 AM PDT #

Hi Parmod,

Discoverer 11g with version 11.1.1.4.0 (patch set 3) and higher is certified with Office 2010.

ADI is not certified with EBS 12.1.3 or MS Office 2010 due to issues with technology compatibility, however WebADI is certified with both. Further information is available in document 1077728.1.

Regards,
Tim

Is BI Publisher supported with Office 2013?

Posted by Mike Hutter on July 03, 2013 at 02:27 PM PDT #

Hi, Mike,

I'm part of the E-Business Suite division. I'm afraid that I don't have much visibility into the BI Publisher certification matrix.

I'd recommend logging a Service Request against BIP to get an answer to this one.

Regards,
Steven

Posted by Steven Chan on July 03, 2013 at 02:49 PM PDT #

Hi Steven,

Just wondering if Oracle E-Business Suite is now certified against the Microsoft Office 2010 64-bit edition ?

if not, any pointers will be appreciated.

thanks
Shah

Hi, Shah,

We're still working through some final issues with our 64-bit Office certification.

Oracle's Revenue Recognition rules prohibit us from discussing certification and release dates, but you're welcome to monitor or subscribe to this blog. I'll post updates here as soon as soon as they're available.

When will Office 2013 be certified?

Rich,

Soon, I hope. We're working through the final stages of this certification right now.

Any updates on this? It is four months later and appears to have no progress. Please advise.

Posted by Lissa on March 01, 2014 at 09:02 AM PST #

Hello, Lissa,

We're still working on this certification. Our releases of EBS 12.2 and 12.2.3 have consumed a great deal of our resources. I'm acutely aware of how eagerly many customers are awaiting this certification.

Please monitor this blog; I'll post updates as soon as possible.

Regards,
Steven
