For an assignment I turning in it needs to be a .doc or a .docx file, which my assignment is in but, I continuously keep getting a message saying it is a wrong file type and will not let me turn in my assignment.
I have a couple of thoughts. If you are using Windows, that operating system like to hide file extensions. I have sometimes seen people name a file something like name.docx, but if the file is actually a PDF or RTF, that could be the real extension but you'd wouldn't be able to see it. At any rate, here is how you can get a Windows computer to show you file extensions to see if your file really is a doc or docx https://www.thewindowsclub.com/show-file-extensions-in-windows
Actually that is the only idea I have. You might want to click the Help button on the left side of Canvas and if you have the option to call or chat with support do that. If those are not options with your Canvas, use the Report a Problem link to open a ticket with Canvas support. They should be able to take a closer look at the assignment to see if something is not set up correctly.
