Rule Solutions for Office Installation – IBM ODM
Rule Solutions for Office enables you to edit business rules in Microsoft Office documents called RuleDocs. You can update and share rules with RuleDocs, which can also provide supporting documentation and information such as the original policies for the rules. Rule Solutions works in conjunction with Decision Center, which serves as a workspace for business users to collaborate on authoring, editing, organizing, and searching for business rules.
What is Rule Solutions for Office?
<li class="p"> Decision Center publishes rule decision tables to Microsoft Excel RuleDocs. The Rule Solutions decision table editor in Excel enables you to view and edit sets of similar action rules. You can also use Excel commands to change table properties. </li> <li class="p"> You use Rule Solutions for Office and RuleDocs to view, review and edit rules offline. You can also share RuleDocs by email or through a common server to collaborate on their contents with people inside or outside your organization. </li> <li class="p"> You can also open a rule directly inside Decision Center to edit it in Rule Solutions without publishing and synchronizing a RuleDoc. When a rule is checked out this way, Decision Center locks it to prevent modification conflicts. No one else can change the rule until it has been checked back in. </li> <li class="p"> <p class="p"> <span class="keyword">Rule Solutions</span> synchronizes the changes made to a RuleDoc back to the environment from which the RuleDoc was published. Even if you change the organization of RuleDocs in a folder or move rules from one RuleDoc to another, your RuleDocs still sync back to their source. </p> </li></ol> <h2> Installing Rule Solutions for Office </h2> <ol> <li> Once the installation of Decision Center is complete, you can manually run the installer for Rule Solutions. </li> <li> If you installed the product with <span class="keyword">Installation Manager</span>, make sure that you selected the <span class="ph uicontrol"><span class="keyword">Rule Solutions for Office</span></span> feature. </li> <li> Navigate to <InstallDir>/Rule Solutions for Office/ </li> <li> Double-click the RuleSolutionsForOffice.exe file to run it. </li> <li> Follow the steps in the installation wizard. </li> </ol><figure id="attachment_1424" aria-describedby="caption-attachment-1424" style="width: 840px" class="wp-caption aligncenter"> <a href="http://www.balasubramanyamlanka.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/05/rule-solutions-for-office.png"><img loading="lazy" class="size-large wp-image-1424" src="http://www.balasubramanyamlanka.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/05/rule-solutions-for-office-1024x294.png" alt="Rule Solutions for Office in Word and Excel" width="840" height="241" srcset="http://www.balasubramanyamlanka.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/05/rule-solutions-for-office-1024x294.png 1024w, http://www.balasubramanyamlanka.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/05/rule-solutions-for-office-300x86.png 300w, http://www.balasubramanyamlanka.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/05/rule-solutions-for-office-768x221.png 768w, http://www.balasubramanyamlanka.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/05/rule-solutions-for-office.png 1062w" sizes="(max-width: 709px) 85vw, (max-width: 909px) 67vw, (max-width: 1362px) 62vw, 840px" /></a><figcaption id="caption-attachment-1424" class="wp-caption-text">Rule Solutions in Word and Excel</figcaption></figure> <blockquote> <div class="section context"> <span class="keyword">Rule Solutions for Office</span> is an optional component that provides a way for business users to create and edit business rules in Microsoft Word or Excel.
