    .doc is not an accepted format here. Even though it shows it in "additional options" under attachments. On the upload window, doc is not listed as a format.

    Just print it to a pdf file and attach. If you don't have a pdf writer, this one is free:

    http://sourceforge.net/projects/pdfcreator/

    just install it, and when you are in word, print the file, but print to PDF Creator instead of your printer. It will ask you to specify a folder, and then create the pdf.

    i like primopdf myself ... switched around from many until i came upon it

    i like how you can modify the files (make notations, circle stuff, use arrows to poin, etc)
    ... if you save the files they get a 'nag' stamp to upgrade to the paid version
    (but i just print to pdf and make a new copy instead of saving... plus that way i can keep an original)
