[Nov. 22, 2010 Update:  Office 2010 (32-Bit) is now certified with the E-Business Suite; see this article for details] Many products in the Oracle E-Business Suite offer optional integrations with Microsoft Office and Microsoft Projects.  For example, some EBS products can export tabular reports to Microsoft Excel.  Some EBS products integrate directly with Microsoft products, and others work through the Applications Desktop Integrator (WebADI and ADI) as an intermediary. These EBS integrations have historically been documented in their respective product-specific documentation.  In other words, if an EBS product in the Oracle Financials family supported an integration with, say, Microsoft Excel, it was up to the product team to document that in the Oracle Financials documentation. Some EBS systems administrators have found the process of hunting through the various product-specific documents for Office-related information to be a bit difficult.  In response to your Service Requests and emails, we've released a new document that consolidates and summarises all patching and configuration requirements for EBS products with MS Office integration points in a single place: Which EBS Products Have MS Office Integrations? This Note covers:
  • Customer Relationship Management (CRM) Products

    Hi Steven,

    For the issue about errors upon trying to open an Expense Report Templeate while using IExpense (R12.06) and MS Excel 2007, the above URL has a solution. This is tracked as Bug Number 7621719 within Oracle.

    I faced the same issue and came across the above solution and it has resolved my issue. I therefore thought it might be beneficial for the larger community to get this resolution posted. The development team has probably already looked at this option and potentially working on a better resolution.

    Regards,

    Ketan

    Hi, Ketan,

    Thanks for sharing this tip with our readers. I've asked one of my Applications Technology Group engineers to look into this, too.

    Regards,

    Steven

    Steven, what is the latest word on certification of MS Office 2010 with R12?

    Thanks,

    Alex


  • Steven Chan Tuesday, April 27, 2010

    Alex,

    We're working on this right now. 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, which I'll post as soon as soon as they're available.

    Regards,

    Steven

    Hi, Mike,

    Our Office 2010 certification is still underway. It's going well, with no major technical issues found so far. We have noted some minor issues that we're working through. Stay tuned.

    Hi Steven,

    When it happens, is Office 2010 likely to be certified with 11i and R12 or just R12?

    Thanks,

    Chris


  • Steven Chan Friday, August 20, 2010

    Hi, Chris,

    Yes, our intentions are to certify Office 2010 with both Oracle E-Business Suite Release 11i and 12. You might have missed this article, which has more details about our upcoming Office 2010 certification:
