Content Types and DOCX files RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    we have a sharepoint library with several content types. Library allows to create new items in docx format according to the mentioned contentypes, but we have the following problem. We have three XsltListViewWebParts, where each have a view on the library by a particular contentype. The problem is that when we want to change contentype on item in the library via the edit (when add new item - just default content tzpe is applied), contentype is not applied on docx item. We have tested that it works for all other file types correctly, even doc, but not for docx type. Do you know what could be the problem? Thank you very much for your response..

  • Hi Pavel Chvatal,

               I think problem may persists in template file URL. So please check the template file format(.docx or .dotx) and parent content type for each created content type.

  • Hi,

    I found, that problem occurs only for contentype, which has some lookup columns - in this case docx file does not accept this contentype. Any idea pls?

  • Hello Pavel,

    We are also facing same issue and we don't have any lookup but still we are facing this issue. Did you get any resolution to your problem?
