XL-Reporter 2005 PL29 - Office 2007


Hi fellows,

I read many postings in this forum which stated that XLR 2005 PL29 does NOT run with MS Excel 2007.

In the posting <XL Reporter with Office 7> by Irina Stanca from Sep. 9. 2007 I found a reply from Mr. Owen Slater which stated that XLR PL29 DOES RUN with MS Excel 2007.

I myself WAS NOT ABLE to install XLR 2005 PL29 with MS Excel 2007 (based on SAP 2005A SP01 PL26)! The error message was <Excel has to be installed. Cannot find Excel.>

At SAP I only could find contradicting information:

1. On the XLR information page: ... XL Reporter currently supports Office 2007 only within the SAP Business One 2005 track.

2. On the download/update page for XLR PL29: XL Reporter currently supports only Office 2003.

Is there any common understanding if or if not XLR is running with Excel 2007?

Maybe there are special settings you have to obey when installing XLR with Excel 2007?

Thank you for any help!
