OfficeControl UI element can be embedded in Web Dynpro views, can access Web Dynpro context, and can trigger Web Dynpro actions.
The following Microsoft Office products are supported:
Microsoft Excel
Microsoft Project

Office integration in Web Dynpro ABAP is based on the Active Component Framework (ACF).
