No Impact with latest Microsoft Word update
By mdonohue on Jan 08, 2010
Microsoft recently released an update to Microsoft Office Word 2007 and Microsoft Office Word 2003. See
This is an update to Microsoft Office Word 2007 (including Office 2007 suites) and Microsoft Office Word 2003 (including the Office 2003 suites). This update was issued as a result of a United States court ruling on December 22, 2009. Generally, customers who purchase or license Word 2007 or Word 2003 from Microsoft after January 10, 2010 for use in the United States and its territories will need to use updated software that does not include a particular custom XML tagging implementation.
Oracle BI Publisher (XML Publisher) has no dependency on the functionality that is being removed. Customers will still be able to create and use BI Publisher RTF layouts using the BI Publisher Template Builder Add-in when installed and used with these updated versions of Microsoft Office Word 2007 and Microsoft Office Word 2003.
