[Editor Jan. 17, 2013 update: Removed outdated references to Open Office.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
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
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
- Professional Academic Edition
- Office Web
- Starter Edition
- Mac Edition
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.
