Hi experts,

I'm currently using SCASEPS transaction and in my case I choose the function create document from template. This opens MS Word application but on some pc it opens it in the right pane of the case window and on others it opens a stand alone word application on the pc and transfers the file to the cache file of SAP on windows.

Do you know which setting should be modified to have this Word always embedded in the right window of the case ?

Thanks in advance for your help and support !

Hi Hamza,

Does the PC where MS Word starts embedded in SAP have the same version of MS Office installed?

At one point I came to conclusion that this behaviour depends only on MS Office version as it always worked embedded for Office 2013 and always in a "new window" for late Office versions.

It also could be a SAPGUI's settings. Try to check into it regarding embedding.

Hi Anton,

Thanks for your reply !

Indeed you're right I think, I have Word 2013, and colleagues use 2016.

I found colleagues using 2010 and it worked too.

Then I assume that this is the anwer.

Thanks a lot for your answer !

Regards !
