1.9 About Microsoft Office Templates

The Oracle IRM solution supports two ways of using templates to enable organizations to create sealed documents consistently:

  • You can use sealed Microsoft Office templates to create Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint documents consistently.

  • You can create sealed documents from regular Microsoft Office templates using the Oracle IRM menu within Microsoft Office.

See "About Using Sealed Microsoft Office Templates".

In each case, your templates can contain Oracle IRM fields that help to remind users of the sensitive nature of the documents created from them. For example, a template might have headers and footers that contain fields that identify the context of the documents, and the name of the user who opens a particular copy.
