If you are using Microsoft Word, and saving your work as a Word document, the filename will automatically end with (have the suffix) .doc and these will open readily.
If you are using a word processing program like WordPerfect or Microsoft Works, the suffix will appear as .wpd or .wps. If you see one of these problem suffixes in the filename, there is an easy solution - see the How to save your assignment as an rtf file page.
