    • Click Save to save the Smart View installer file to a directory to which you have access and from which you can run executable files.

      Open the folder where you saved the Smart View executable and double-click it to run it. Then continue to step 3.

  3. Select the language to use for the installation wizard.
  4. Click Next.
  5. Follow the prompts in the wizard.
  6. When installation is complete, click Finish.

    The Smart View ribbon is displayed the next time you open Microsoft Excel, PowerPoint, or Word.


    Starting with Smart View, the Oracle BI EE per-user extension installer is included with the Smart View client installation.

    The extension is installed the first time you start Office if the Oracle BI EE extension is not already installed and it is not disabled.
