In my organization we have some applications built with oracle forms

LibreOffice we are trying to remove the office suite from the pc's but
the users with these applications can't make the switch.

the problem is that oracle forms generates the documents in the client
using ole2 calls
( to the
office suite through a component called webutil

I'm very interested in an answer to this problem, as this is precisely what opened the can of worms alllwing Microsoft Office into our office.

We use Quickbooks Enterprise, and it does the same thing - when you generate reports, it uses direct ole calls to either excel or word, which meant we *had* to install Office on our Accountant's computers. Once they got it, everyone else started claiming they *needed* it for one reason or another.
