BEx/BW 3.5 with Office 2010


We will soon upgrade configurations to Windows 7 and Office 2010.

I am just an admin and I try to know now the impacts on users using BEx 3.5 (our BW servers are still running on BW 3.5).

I have read that users should run SAP GUI 7.20 to make BEx work with Office 2010.

Is that correct ?

Users currently run on SAP GUI 7.10 and I have also read that there is a Technical Match between SAP GUI 7.10 FEP 9 and SAP GUI 7.20 FEP 1.

What does that mean ? Could users run BEx with Office 2010 by keeping SAP GUI 7.10 ?

This question is important for us as deploying SAP GUI 7.20 on all users' PCs would be a big job.

Thanks for your help.
