What are the Microsoft Office MIME Types?

FILExt does not presently have a search capability for MIME types however, in the interest of helping, this FAQ contains a complete list of the official Microsoft Office MIME types for the newest version of Microsoft Office (2007+).

To fully support the new types, web server administrators should add the MIME types for the Open XML formats to their Web server metabase settings so as to add the correct MIME type header in documents saved directly on the server and sent back.

The following table documents the HTTP MIME types that are available when working with Office 2007 documents:
