Is there need for Office package in NPrinting June 2018?

Hi guys

Is there any need for installing the Office package on the NPrinting servers (June 2018 version), as it was with earlier versions of NPrinting?

Thank you in advance

hi

you only need office to design reports ,

so even in previous versions you don't need to install office on the server

only on the computers of the users that design reports

NPrinting requires a local install of MS Office for developers who need to use NPrinting designer to build reports using the MS Office template editors (Excel, Word and PPT).

MS Office 365 is the web version of Office 2016.

NPrinting supports Office 2016 for report development. Office is not required on the server or by recipients of reports or to view reports in NewsStand.

Office is only required on the Designer machine to initially create the report templates (in the case of Word, Excel & PowerPoint). NPrinting Server does not require Office to produce reports from these templates.

Hi Ali - for all straight forward questions go to help.qlik.com.

Answering your question... it all depends if you plan to use Office based templates and where developers will develop them.

cheers

Microsoft Office

Excel, PowerPoint, and Word 2007, 2010, 2013 or 2016

Both 32-bit and 64-bit architectures are supported.

Microsoft Office must be installed locally on computers where Qlik NPrinting Designer is installed if you plan to created and manage Excel, PowerPoint, or Word report templates.

You do not need Microsoft Office to manage HTML and PixelPerfect report templates.

Re: Is there need for Office package in NPrinting June 2018?

Hi Lech,

Our NPrinting set up(Qlik Sense Sept 2018, NPrinting Sept 2018) throws error when total power point template based report size exceeds 2 GB.

Is there any possibility that developer machine having 32 bit power point could be the reason behind it ?

Thanks,
