My form won't allow an attachment to upload to a document, they've been getting an error for the last week. Please advise

Based on what you had mentioned Nicola, it seems that people are not able to upload files to your form.
Based on the screenshot, I believe however that the issue is happening when you try to download that .docx file that is mentioned in the email - not when uploading the same to the form.
If so, please do note that you must first save that file (download it from that link). Once you do that, you can open it in your Microsoft Office Word.
Prior to that, you will receive an error that Word was not able to open the file, or a bit different error - all relating to the file not being in a local place, but it being a link instead.

so should they not be uploading a .docx file or should they just try to upload a .doc file instead?
- BenAnswered on November 18, 2015 at 02:51 PM
Can you please let us know if the issue is with:
1. uploading the file to the form
2. opening the file from the email notification?
As mentioned I had presumed that it is the second, in which case it does not matter if it is .doc or .docx file, what matters is to download the file first, and only then to open it with Microsoft Word, but we would need additional details to be sure what is the issue and to properly assist you with the same.

The issue is with uploading the document to the form
- BenAnswered on November 18, 2015 at 04:31 PM
OK, thank you for confirming.
Now in regards to the issue, your screenshot shows that the file was uploaded to the form - and that it was passed in the email notification.
I have just filled out your form as well to confirm and all of the files seem to have been uploaded without any issues.
Can you please tell us what is the exact field with the issue and the error that you get when you try to upload the file?
Also, does this happens on the form when you access it over direct link, or does it happen on the form that is embedded on your website?

It's happens when the students try to upload that specific document (the checklist) to the form
the SSN request has been removed

i'm not sure what the issue is, I just went through and found that I didn't have issues uploading documents... so i'm going to chalk it up to teenagers not understanding basic technology... thank you again for all of your help
