Word Document question

Is there a way to attach a word document to a post? It obviously doen't end with any of the valid file extensions...so I'm guessing there isn't.

THe best way is to Cut and Paste
I've never done it for a large document - but it works.

Yes cut and paste would be the only way. You can not actually attach the file here.

You can get a utility that will 'print' a document as a pdf file. I use Acrobat Distiller, but CutePDF and, probably, many free utilities will do the same.

I'm not sure about this forum (I'm a noob), but most forums allow pdf uploads.

i dont know if .html files are allowed to be uploaded here, but Word allows you to save your document as a web page. If nothing else you could host it as an HTML page and just link it.

I do it all the time...just copy and paste. (GB, if you CUT and paste, you'll lose your file.

If you need help learning to do that, PM me, and I'll explain it.

ps8 I do not think so.

To do what I think you want, you can only do if you are referring to an actual website address.

As had been said, I fear your option is only to cut and paste.

LOL looks like I was typing without thinking. Not the first time I have done that

Of course the file will only be lost if you save after cutting.
