Problem with content type for Word 12 documents

Dec 17, 2009 at 11:37 AM

Using the current version, I do a search and get the results. Under the Facet Heading of Content Types, I get an entry for Word 12(13) . However, if I click on this entry, I get the filtered results page showing no results. The search box has changed to 'my search string:"application/vnd.ms-word.document.12"'

 

Any ideas about what to do to put things right?

 

Thanks

Having the same issue with docx documents
If the content type query is manually changed in the search box or url from application/vnd.ms-word.document.12 to application/vnd.ms-word the docx documents are then returned and show in core results.

It looks like this mime type is reslving wrongly to  application/vnd.ms-word.document.12 rather than application/vnd.ms-word.

 

Do you experience the same thing?

Yes, that seems so. I emailed a member of the team directly and this was his reply:

Truly sorry, John. Got swamped lately and don’t see any free time soon to dive into this. Not even sure if Stoic or other consulting company can assist with this.if you try, kindly let me know. It might be a MOSS bug for all I can tell.

Not a lot of help.

I'm currently trying to use the file extention instead.
