Field Length Limitation in DMS Define Workstation Application Type


In reviewing our Workstation Application Types for DMS configuration we find that the field called "File suffix for application" has a 3-char field length. This field is used to retrieve documents once stored. It appears the intent of the field is to allow for creation of a temp file with the same file extension as the document itself. With four character file extensions (Office 2007, .docx, .xlsx, .pptx) we do not experience a problem with the File Format field itself, where the actual extension is stored but we do see a problem with the field, File suffix for application.

Has anyone encountered this problem yet?

I will be searching for OSS Notes and/or submitting a customer message shortly.
