SAP BusinessObjects BI Platform 4.2 SP xx - Compatibility with Office 2007 Standard / Professional

Hello,

due to a upcoming update of our current BI Platform (4.1 Support Pack 7 Patch 1), we weren't able to test in advance if there could be any incompatibilities between the platform 4.2 and the Microsoft Office Version that is used in our Company (2007 Standard / Professional).

I think the Interfaces between the platform (including its BO-Tools) and Office are very few (Export to Excel, csv,..) but we cannot be sure everything will run without any Problems.

As it is not mentioned in the official documentation, I'd like to know if anybody has any experiences about this combination?

Thanks in advance.

    If it is not in PAM - it is not supported.

    Office 2007 and BI4.2 + are not compatible.

    The compatibility between BI Platform versions and various MS Office products is mentioned in official documentation here :

    Hello,

    thanks for your help.

    Unfortunately I already checked the documentation and Office 2007 is not mentioned there at all.

    This is why I asked for any experiences about this combination.
