docx, xlsx, pptx files download as zip for some browser

Dear all,

I find that docx, xlsx, pptx files will download as zip for some browser.

Would like to know if it related to the MIME setting for portal, if it is where can I change the setting?

Thanks in advance




Hi Bill,

Technically, these files are zip files. However, in your case I assume the browser doesn't recognize the file type since NetWeaver hasn't provided a MIME type and therefore tries to be 'intelligent'...

Have a look at SAP note 1062725 ( this might solve your issue
