Download Link

I am totally new to Wordpress and I am picking this up from a collegue that is away.  I need to have a link on a page download a document,  See the "here" link for this page:

I don't know how (or where) to upload the document (PDF) to the site so I can point the link to it?  I assume that is how to download the doc via a link.

I have all the password access needed.  I see the page and the link in edit mode.

Thanks in advance

    Go into Edit mode for the page and right above the formatting toolbar, you will see "Upload/Insert" and four icons.  Choose the last icon (looks like a sunburst) and that will invoke the uploaded.  Upload the document.  When done, the screen will change.  Give it a title and then choose "Insert in Post"

    Hi jason1178,
    How do I associate it with the "here" link that now just points back to itself.  What happens after I hit Insert in Post?

    After you Insert in Post it will write a new link to the PDF file in the editor.  From there you can use the Link Tool (chain) to change the text and then copy/paste it into position
