No docx/xlsx/pptx support in OFFI in Patch 12 (GUI 7.10 for Win)

SAP Note 1286878 has also been updated as of today (02/27/09), and for those using OFFI, support for Office 2007 xml documents (docx/xlsx/pptx) will not be available now until Patch 13 is released (Week 19?)

An FYI for those like myself, who are anxious in having this support 😊

    Hi Michael,

    originally we had planned to introduce support for the new formats in patchlevel 12, but we figured out that the way we originally planned to introduce this support would have had some very severe drawbacks (including requiring changes to applications using Desktop Office Integration). Therefore we decided to search for a better solution. In the meantime we found a very good solution which works without changes to the applications and will come with patchlevel 13 of SAP GUI for Windows 7.10.

    For those who urgently need support of .docx we will additionally provide an intermediate patch which is based on patchlevel 12 and will - in addition to the corrections from PL12 - only contain the extension required for using .docx in about 2 weeks. Please keep watching note 1286878 for more information on this.

    Best regards,
