Thanks for any help with this. I am trying to include a blank .csv file for my students to enter their answers into. It needs to be a .csv file because I have a program I wrote in R to grade them and give them feedback. I upload a file named, Lastname_Firstname_Assignment_2.csv as a link in the assignment instructions and everything appears correct in the HTML code. However, when my students and I click on the link to try to get the file, a different file comes up. It's the first .csv file that I did this in an assignment with. I even tried to delete this original file but it just keeps coming back.

 

Here's how the assignment appears:

The HTML looks okay with the correct file names being linked:

But alas, Canvas downloads the incorrect file:
