On the page it states that from version 2024-02-29-preview you can use Microsoft Office documents for the custom classification model.

I am using version 2024-02-29-preview

The file types i see when i add new documents:



When i use all files and select a word of excel file:

    Hello @Michelle Barlo | Twyzer , the product team confirmed that custom classification does support Microsoft office format files with 2024-02-29-preview API. However, this is supported with REST API only.

    Please ensure that the file extensions are limited to these supported formats: Word (DOCX), Excel (XLSX), PowerPoint (PPTX), and HTML.

    Here is a similar thread you can refer to where the issue resolved by using Rest API.

    I hope this helps.
