When I try to send an Office file like Word and Excel, I got an error on upload. Can someone help me with that?

Hi Luis,

Can you give me more information about this issue?
- Which error is presented to you? 
- How big is the file you're uploading? + 5Mb?



The files are .docx or .xlsx and the error I got is in the picture attachment. The file size is about 15/20kb.
Do you know any limitation?
I really don't know why this is happening. Are you able to see the server.js log? 

You should see something like this: 


Let me know if you can :)

Yes, the error is:

Error: String or binary data would be truncated.
The statement has been terminated.

Any ideia?

Humm, it might be some sort of interruption. Are you behind a firewall or something?
Have you tried to upload a similar file to my example here: http://heliodolores.outsystemscloud.com/social/ ?

Yes I tried and got the same error.

I found the solution!

The problem is the lengh of the field Chat_File.Type on BD. Is only 50 and the Mime Type of docx have 72 characteres, is:  application/vnd.openxmlformats-officedocument.wordprocessingml.document

I change lenght to 100 and works!
Great catch :) I'll add it to my backlog too.

Thank you for reporting this Luis!
