I am a newish member and am having trouble uploading a Word document to post a new Topic. If I try to to "copy" a (long) Word document by selecting it with the Browse button then pressing the Attach This File button, I get a message saying "You are not permitted to use this type of file"

Can some kind soul advise me how I get a Word document into a post (like this one!)

Thank you.

Perhaps cut and paste the text in your word document into the 'post' window, or change to a browser that has a built in spell check function, most do. Or learn how to turn on your browser's spell check function?

Select all the text in the word document and press CTRL C

Then start your post and press CTRL V

If it's the UK census data you might want to split it into multiple posts.

Hi cashinmattress

I used tahoma's suggestion (see post below yours) and it worked!

However I am grateful for your response.

Thank you.

Hi cashinmattress

I do not often go into such depth in my computering - but as you can see the first and third above have done the job so well I might just learn a few more!

Thank you
