    Hi,

    I know Oracle Visual Builder Add-in for Excel helps to download data from a REST service to a table in an Excel workbook, where we can modify, create, or delete data before sending changes back to the REST service. 

    Just wanted to know if there is any limitation in using VBCS plug in for excel. I read in one of the blogs that VBCS excel plug in supports only 32 bit version of Microsoft 2016.

     

    Version:

      Hi Rajeev,

      From the doc:

      You can install the Oracle Visual Builder Add-in for Excel in the 32-bit version of Microsoft Excel 2016 on a computer using the Windows 7 or Windows 10 operating system. For more details, see Supported Platforms for the Visual Builder Add-in for Excel that you retrieve from My Oracle Support (https://support.oracle.com) if you search for Doc ID 2474783.1.
