Question & Answer
As of DB2® Content Manager V8.4, the DB2 Content Manager eClient and Client for Windows® support Microsoft® Office 2007 files. However, the file formats have changed with the new release, and with them there are new file extensions and MIME types. To properly support all of the new features of Microsoft Office 2007, you might need to add content classes to DB2 Content Manager.
You can create new MIME types for DB2 Content Manager manually from the system administration client. After logging on, expand the Data Modeling tree node and select MIME Types. Right-click and select New. Enter the required information, and click OK. The next time a user logs onto the eClient or Client for Windows, the import interfaces will include your new MIME type.
For the most commonly used Microsoft Office 2007 files, you can use the following XML file:
This file can be imported into the system administration client by selecting Tools -> Import XML. Leave the Data model file field blank and select the downloaded file in the Administrative Objects file field.
Click Import and follow the instructions.

|MSWORD OOXML||docx||Microsoft Word 2007 Office Open XML|

|POWERPOINT OOXML||pptx||Microsoft PowerPoint 2007 Office Open XML|
