    As you know the newer Microsoft office created a new extension for its documents. If you look carefully, it add the letter X in the extension (docx). Since it is another extension, you have to manually add this in the extension list of the upload field. If you have only doc, it will not recognize the newer version word docs. Entering docx and xlsx will enable you to upload the new version of the word documents.
