Desktop Office Integration in ITS

I'm in a situation where I need to use "Desktop Office Integration" (DOI) in the ITS. But DOI is only supported in WinGUI. So I'm looking for a workaround.

My case is that I'm using the LinkServer in DMS, so that some metadata is linked direct from the Word document and updated whenever the user opens the document.

The LinkServer is available as a part of WinGUI and the ITS doesn't contain a workaround.

Am I the only one banging ny head on the wall in this issue?

    Hi Thomas,

    Please have a look at SAP notes 890606 and 314568.

    You might also test report saprdemoviewing with Webgui to see that Office Integration works with ITS (but with some restrictions).

    Thanks and regards,

    Dieter

    Hello,

    The final solution was to create an RFC server application in .NET that receives the office document, saves it to disk, opens the document with the relevant Office application through automation. And also updates the fields in the document. Saved the document to disk again and sendt it back to SAP.
