We have a requirement to integrate with MS word and need to have option to Edit within word and save back to Pega We also need this supported in all browser supported by Pega version 7.1.8 From what we are aware the support for Silver-light plugin is required for this feature and it miht not be available in 7.1.8 or future version Do we have any replacement to that functionality in 7.1.8 or any future integration with MS word in 7.2 which would allow above functionality to be implemented?

Microsoft Office Support in Pega 7.1.8 and later Pega 7 has migrated to file-based integration with Microsoft Office and productivity software suites. Beginning in version 7.1.8, Pega 7 supports any version of MS Office that can read and interpret .docx, .xlsx, and .csv files. Any 32-bit version of MS Office which supports these file formats can be used.
NOTE: The 64-bit versions of Microsoft Office are not supported.
Silverlight plugin is available for Pega 7.1.8 and the future versions as well. It’s available till Pega 7.2.2 with upgraded mode. At present there is no replacement available for this Silverlight control for direct word editing functionality. However, we have updated Silverlight control functionality on Pega 7.2.1 and 7.2.2 versions. It’s supporting till Word-2016 (32-Bit) versions.
I think Excel edit functionality will be handled by using an import and export model from Pega 7.2.1 version onwards.
