    Hello Ilker,

    You first need to make sure you have the appropriate MIME type defined for xlsm files under System Administration -> System Configuration -> Knnowladge Management -> Content Management -> Utilities -> MIME Types. It should be application/

    Afterwards go to System Administration -> System Configuration -> Knowladge Management -> Content Management -> Utilities -> Icons and create a new configuration for the types "xlsm", the icon should be the same as standard "xls" files:

    Mime type: application/

    Then go to: Visual Administrator -> Global Configuration -> Server -> HTTP provider -> Never Compressed and add ",*.xlsm

    ,application/" to the end of the line.

    Afterwards press "Update" button and "Save Properties" button, engine restart is required.

    You will then need to upload the xlsm file to the portal again so that it gets the correct MIME type, you can view this in the details -> settings -> properties screen of the document, any file that has the MIME type "application/octet-stream" is incorrect and will need to be uploaded again.
