Notes

  • There are other formats not listed here that may work, but results may vary.
  • Vault does not make any changes to files once uploaded except in cases where the file utilizes a feature such as Merge Fields or RIM Dynamic Linking.
  • Vault may fail to render Microsoft Office files containing macros.
  • Vault does not recommend embedding files within Microsoft Word source files. Although Vault may be able to render these in some cases, embedded files violate best practices for validation.
  • Vault may not render multiple-page files with more than 4000 pages.
