Sometimes when using Edit with Word functionality with Office 2007 through a Content Task Flow the content changes are not saved while updated Metadata regarding the change session is saved.

The problem may be intermittent.

Locate a word document exposed through WebCenter Spaces Content Presenter task flow and select “Edit with Word”
Office 2007 opens.

Select “Get Updates on Task Pane”
Update the document
Exit the Word session and accept the prompt to check in the updated document.

Once the check in has been processed through completion in WebCenter Content, examine the document and its metadata.

The metadata will have been saved, but the document changes will not have.

The issue is not specific to a browser.


 WebCenter Portal is configured for authentication through Oracle Access Manager (OAM).
