Hi Angelica,

  The way to upload a file to Mendix is done using the built in Mendix system.document entity.  If you follow the instructions in the How-to guide here you can see how to create a document upload location pretty easily.

  Is there more that you want to do with your document than simply store it in Mendix for later download?  A lot of times people want some way to view uploaded pdfs.  If this is the case, check out the File Document Viewer in the Mendix app store

https://appstore.home.mendix.com/link/app/12/Mendix/Document-Viewer

  If you want to edit the word document directly in the Mendix application, that is a much more complex request and I would recommend you leverage Microsoft Office Online and open the document there.

  Hope this helps,

Rob
