Last night when I was trying to upload a paper to the Staff College the forum wouldn't let me, and it said that the word doc in question was an "invalid file". However, when I tried testing other word files through uploading them I got the same response. So therefore I was wondering what maybe behind the problem?

Thank you?

While I can't say for certain (that would require an Admin) it might be due your user Rank (regular). Some features of the board are linked to the user rank you have. The higher the rank the more features are available for you (like a bigger storage for private messages). It might very well be that on your level you have not yet the feature to upload files (or at least word docs) and need to increase your rank before doing so. (Due a larger post count for example)

I've had the best luck saving my word docs as PDF's these have uploaded OK, though there is a size limit.

It also might just be the file type itself. When I tried uploading a .docx last week it wouldn't upload, but .doc uploaded just fine. Perhaps WAB just doesn't support Office 2007 yet
