    Hi Tobias,

    As of now, the support is as below:

    1. Office 2003 in Sp07 and above

    2. Office 2007

    3. Office 2010 (32 bit only). 64 bit is supported in SP09 and above

    Hope this helps.

    Hello Tobias,

    No, only Microsoft Office 2007 or 2010 is supported.

    Thanks

    Hi

    I just checked SAP Note - SAP Note 1855186 - ALL: Windows 8, Office 2013 and Internet Explorer 10 Support.

    It stated that Office 2013 is supported for EPM add-in 10.0 SP14 onwards.

    Has anyone tried that Excel 2013 works or not. I need to know.

    Thanks

    Jigar

    • We have BPC for Microsoft as well.

      When we had that 2007 error occur some time ago as shown up above during attempting to install 64 bit add-in (bigvol), SP14 I think, Office 2010, we had luck in one instance by uninstalling and reinstalling Office and in another instance, we just reloaded the original Windows workstation image and it magically decided that was good enough - the add-in install went off without a hitch after installing the required MS components for Visual C++ 2010+ and .net 4.0 (which only ever happens on the 64 bit installs).  We figure that something in Windows had gotten corrupted.

      We've found the 32 bit add-in to be much more stable than the 64 bit one, and the latest SP18 to be the best overall both for Office 2013 and 2010.  We've been recommending to our business units to install Office at 32 bit if they have a choice, regardless of what their O/S is because the BPC add-in for Microsoft Platform always works perfectly in the 32 bit Office installations.  Most casual business users will never notice a difference between the two other than BPC freezing up less frequently.

      One final mention on Office 2013:  While it works fine for us at this time, it's really only with the latest SP18 +  add-in installs.  The older add-ins froze and disabled themselves frequently.  One thing our users noticed with Office 2013 is that it doesn't natively support having multiple sessions where one is connected and another not connected.  However, there's a workaround we found.  I think if I recall, it's opening up an Office app (i.e. Excel), then down in the Windows task bar, hold down Alt and right-click to open another window.  That will open up a discrete session as opposed to it's native single session.

      Oh!  Also, we learned that the add-in allows you to "upgrade" or "repair" by simply reinstalling it over itself.  So if you want to updatee your add-in version, there's no need to uninstall it first.  I know this is so for the 32 bit.  Not sure on 64 bit.

    Hi,

    I think without uninstalling the previous version you might have over written office 2013. some how its not working something. try following the approach suggested by chavarria and let us know if you face any problem.

    And right now I am using EPM Add in SP17 which is compatible with 2013 so u need to check is your EPM add in is compatible with office 2013 or not.

    Regards,

    Andrew.
