Is the file name in capitals too? e.g. REG.docx or reg.docx
Is the file in the same folder as the page the link is on?

Sounds like you haven't uploaded the file properly - either it isn't there at all, or it's in the wrong place, or it's got a different name (which may or may not be case sensitive)

Perhaps post a live link so we can check it out. Otherwise, there's not much we can do except tell you to check the paths, file names etc.

Check with your web hosting admin whether .docx and .txt files are permitted to be served.
