We are on EP7 with SP12 and have recently started using MS Office 2007 Word and Excel documents. These documents open as zip files in the Portal. I have read note 1062725. Is there a way to make the length for the column name "MIMETYPE" from varchar(50) to varchar(256) without applying a patch?
We are not in a position to apply patches at this time and would like to be able to make these changes manually. I have already adjusted the mimetype handler to include the docx, pptx, and xlsx document types.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
