I have KMS running on Server 2012.  I was told that if I use the KMS key for Datacenter 2012, it will activate all the Microsoft products.  Is this true, or is it only OS's?  I will need to activate Office 2013.  Will our current KMS server activate Office 2013?  If not, how would I go about setting up KMS for Office 2013?

Please, I only want responses from people who know the answer and have done this before, not someone who will Google and paste links.

I've requested that this question be deleted for the following reason:

I did not get an answer to my question, just 2 links posted by one person, one of which referred to installing KMS on Server 2008 R2 and not Server 2012.  I opened an incident with Microsoft and will find out the best way to proceed.

I have setup a new KMS server on Server 2012 which is activating windows and Office

i had some issues getting the office element on there

i used this process to get it working

From an elevated command prompt, simply run slmgr /ipk <key-with-hyphens> twice to install both the Windows KMS key and the Office 2013 KMS key.
 
Once this is done, simply run slmgr /ato to activate the KMS keys against Microsoft servers.

then you can use this to check the office element

cscript slmgr.vbs /dlv 2E28138A-847F-42BC-9752-61B03FFF33CD

That works perfect!  Thanks irweazelwallis!  Previously I ran the Office Volume License Pack, which brings up a GUI and allows you to add the key, but it removes previously added keys.  Using your way at the command prompt worked perfectly!
