Office 2010 64-bit Certified with EBS 12

Office 2010 logoMicrosoft Office 2010 64-bit is now certified with EBS 12.0.6, 12.1.3, and 12.2 with desktop clients using the following configurations:

The 32-bit equivalents are already certified; details are available here.

Are any patches required?

You must apply server-side patches to EBS 12.0.6 and 12.1.3 environments.  Additional server-side patches are not required for EBS 12.2.x.  All required interop patches are documented here:

What about EBS 11i?

There are no plans for this certification in E-Business Suite 11i.  This certification primarily affects Web Application Desktop Integrator (a.k.a. WebADI, BNE) and Report Manager (FRM) integration with a 64-bit desktop client configuration.  Architectural constraints in the EBS 11i versions of these components make these certifications infeasible.

What EBS products are covered by this certification?

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 64-bit Professional Edition with Oracle E-Business Suite.  We expect that our certification tests also apply to the 64-bit equivalents, if available, to the following editions:

  • 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 four editions above.

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.

Hi - When will be Windows 8.1 and IE11 will be certified for ORACLE EBS ?

Hi, Guest,

Those certifications are in the pipeline.

Hello, Ramkumar,

We're working on the Office 2013 certification right now. For more details about what's covered in that certification, see:

Hi Steven,
Thanks for your blog on all these useful information in EBS ATG.
Regarding to deploy JRE 1.6 client in EBS, I read doc 209807.1 Appendix B and know it's possible to have the coexistence JRE 7 and JRE 6 at one EBS instance.
My question is that is it possible to have the coexistence of JRE 1.6 in both 64-bits and 32-bits version?
(to let my users to use IE9 32bits or 64bits to connect to EBS sever freely just depends on their favors or depends on the desktop env. limitation)

Regards,
James

Hi, James,

Thanks for the feedback on our blog. Glad to hear that you've found it useful.

I don't think we've tested this particular scenario, but it should work. My understanding is that the 64-bit and 32-bit versions of the JRE are installed in different locations, so there shouldn't be a conflict if they're both invoked by their respective IE counterparts.

Steven

hi Steven,

When you say Office 2010 64 Bit is certified, we still have users having issue with ADI on Excel 64 Bit. I believe all it needs is ADI code needs to be compiled in 64 Bit.

Do you know if that also works ?

ADI ( Application Desktop Integrator )

Thanks,
Dhiraj

Posted by Dhiraj on January 06, 2014 at 03:04 PM PST #

Hi, Dhiraj,

Are you referring to the client/server version of ADI? That product is deprecated starting with EBS 12.0. In other words, you can use desktop ADI with EBS 11.5.10.2, but if you're on any of the EBS 12 releases noted above, you must switch to Web ADI.

If you're having issues with Web ADI, please drop me a line with your Service Request number.

Regards,
Steven

Posted by Steven Chan on January 06, 2014 at 03:13 PM PST #

hi Steven,

Even with Web ADI, it does have the Excel component and users basically load journals through Excel. You still create journals in Excel and then in Excel via the Web ADI, it adds an AddIn.

Hope that helps.

Posted by Dhiraj on January 08, 2014 at 10:29 AM PST #

Hi, Dhiraj,

Thanks; I'm familiar with Web ADI. ;-)

If you're still having trouble, please forward your Service Request number so that we can assist.

Regards,
Steven

Posted by Steven Chan on January 08, 2014 at 10:49 AM PST #

We recently applied the 64-bit patch for Web-ADI. Previously we were able to copy content from another spread sheet and paste it to the Web ADI sheet, but the copy\paste functionality seems to be taken away with the application of this patch. Have anyone else reported this issue? Are you already aware of this, would like to get some help with this. My Oracle Support had not hits related to this issue.
Thanks
Anjana

Anjana,

This blog is meant to provide general technical guidance for Oracle E-Business Suite. For your specific issue, please log an Oracle Service Request via My Oracle Support. When logging the SR, provide a detailed description of the problem you are encountering and the version of MS Excel that you are using in your environment.

Thanks.
Elke

Hi Steve,

We have upgraded to windows 8.1 and couldn't able to run Java forms of Oracle EBS 12.1. Will you please update us on certification status for IE 11 / Win 8.1.

Regards,
Varadhi

Posted by Varadhi on March 10, 2014 at 09:25 AM PDT #

Hi, Varadhi,

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

How widely have you deployed Windows 8.1? Are you converting all of your organization's desktops to Windows 8.1, or are you leaving a mix of, say, Windows 7?

We're still working on our IE 11 + Win. 8.1 certification. This certification is going well but is taking some time to complete.

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.

Regards,
Steven

Hi Steve,

Thanks and appreciate your response.

And, as of now we are testing phase only. We may move based on successful of all the scenarios. However, we are waiting for your confirmation on certification to move further.

Hi Steve,

May I know what are the Tablets / Tablet PCs support Oracle EBS forms. Our Management is very keen to know about this as it is mobility.

Hi, Varadhi,

EBS 12.1 and 12.2 are certified with Apple iPads and Mobile Safari. See this externally-published article:

Apple iPads Certified with Oracle E-Business Suite 12.1 (Oracle E-Business Suite Technology)
https://blogs.oracle.com/stevenChan/entry/safari_apple_ipads_certified_with

Java cannot be run on iOS devices, so it isn't possible to run Forms-based content on these devices.

We currently have to plans to certify Forms-based EBS products on any tablets.

Regards,
Steven
