Microsoft Office MIME Types

This article describes MIME Types and the corresponding file extension of the Microsoft Office documents. It will very be useful for document analysis, and you can easily define ContentType for the Microsoft Office associated documents in ASP.NET applications. Also you can use this details to customize MIME types in IIS server configuration.

 For Microsoft Office Excel, you can define content type like this example.
 Aspx page
<%response.ContentType="application/vnd.ms-excel"%>

 C#
  Response.ContentType = "application/vnd.ms-excel";
