I'm working on an MS Access\ Excel 2010 issue that has a PL/PDF plugin. Who supports PL/PDF? Is it a software company or a programming language.

Thanks for the reply. I've seen that info and I've googled it of course.

My issue is that someone has a a PL/PDF Plugin in Access 2010 and since I'm not a developer I didn't know who or what this was associated with.

I know now it's Oracle own programming Lang.

Would PL/* ever have compatibility issues with Office 2010?

I cannot find anything that will allow PL/SQL (Oracle's procedural code language) to run natively in Access/Excel.

Are you sure the reference you have found doesn't make a databaes call to an Oracle procedure or function that in turn, calls PL/PDF?

If the code isn't considered sensitive, can you post some of it?

Interesting. You're saying you cannot find what would be considered a "plugin" for access?

It probably does make a call to a Oracle function. I wouldn't be able to tell the difference.

Im not able to post any of the code. I did however find the 3rd party company that sold us the PL/SQL Developer package and the support info.

I'll contact them and they can check it for themselves. Thanks for the research slightwv.

Not able to contact 3rd party company, but it does seem that it does NOT run natively in Access.

If it does not run native, why the 'C' grade?
