We are in the middle of upgrading to 6.20 ITS patch level 17 from our 4.6D C4 ITS installs. Our ITS instances are connecting to 4.6B R/3 instances on the backend. In testing, we have run into an issue with one of our HR ESS web app services (PRWW). This service is the Travel Manager offline functionality...and the issue is Excel is not being invoked properly. In searching OSS, I have found the following pertinent notes: 713582, 517687 & 627851. It appears that the most current of these (713582) is now indicating that that functionality no longer exists...and you must use the newer functionality from a newer R/3 system, like a 4.6C R/3 system or go back to 6.10 ITS. Neither of these are valid options...we are R/3 4.6B so we cannot use 4.6C functionality and I just learned at ASUG conference that 6.10 is no longer supported!
Does anyone know how we can correct this issue if we are running against a 4.6B R/3 system? If you have any ideas on this or have run into this issue, please let me know via this discussion forum posting. Thanks.
