EP7.0 SP12 and MS Office 2007 files compatibility



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.
