Hi,
We need to know the correct syntax for adding xlsx file types into IIS 6 MIME Types.
Have a new spreadsheet on there saved in the new format, but we can't download it and this is apparently our solution.

There are two box's to fill out;
Extension:
MIME Type:

What do i put in these two areas in order to allow xlsx files?

Thanks

FYI...

These maps came from the following MS KB article:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/936496

You need to add the correct mime types for IIS. You could do it for the individual extensions you want using the below steps:

IIS5/6
open IIS Manager
Right click Web Sites
Select Properties 
Select HTTP Headers 
Select Mime Types 
Enter a new extension and the appropriate mime type.
Repeat as needed for each extension.

IIS7
Same as above but in the Feature pane call Mime Types.

Mime settings.
.docm,application/vnd.ms-word.document.macroEnabled.12
.docx,application/vnd.openxmlformats-officedocument.wordprocessingml.document
.dotm,application/vnd.ms-word.template.macroEnabled.12
.dotx,application/vnd.openxmlformats-officedocument.wordprocessingml.template
.potm,application/vnd.ms-powerpoint.template.macroEnabled.12
.potx,application/vnd.openxmlformats-officedocument.presentationml.template
.ppam,application/vnd.ms-powerpoint.addin.macroEnabled.12
.ppsm,application/vnd.ms-powerpoint.slideshow.macroEnabled.12
.ppsx,application/vnd.openxmlformats-officedocument.presentationml.slideshow
.pptm,application/vnd.ms-powerpoint.presentation.macroEnabled.12
.pptx,application/vnd.openxmlformats-officedocument.presentationml.presentation
.xlam,application/vnd.ms-excel.addin.macroEnabled.12
.xlsb,application/vnd.ms-excel.sheet.binary.macroEnabled.12
.xlsm,application/vnd.ms-excel.sheet.macroEnabled.12
.xlsx,application/vnd.openxmlformats-officedocument.spreadsheetml.sheet
.xltm,application/vnd.ms-excel.template.macroEnabled.12
.xltx,application/vnd.openxmlformats-officedocument.spreadsheetml.template
