Last updated on MARCH 08, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle WebCenter Portal - Version 11.1.1.6.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

When using the Documents Service Task Flows in Webcenter Spaces 11.1.1.6,  it is not possible to Edit Files In-Place with Microsoft Office (for example) when the document is in the "Contribution Folders" Folder or below. The menu item : "Edit with word" is disabled.
"Editing Files In-Place" works well in the Spaces related Folders.

### Step by step instructions ###
1 - Connect to Webcenter Spaces
2 - Create a page
3 - add "Task Flows and Document Components" the "Document Manager task flow " for example.
4 - In taskFlow properties, change the "Start Folder Path" with a folder beginning with "Contribution Folders"
5 - Upload a file
6 - Try to modify with the menu item "Edit With Word" => the menu item is disabled !
