    Word Documents

    Hi If this has been discussed previously, I apologize ahead of time for repeating. When I receive a word document in an email on my iPad, is there something out there that will open it? I am willing to pay for an app if it is good. Recommendations, suggestions? Thanks!

    You should be able to tap on the doc attachment in the mail message to view it.

    As IpadOne said you will need to get Pages to edit it.

    I highly recommend you check out the Guided Tours on Apples site. They will show you how to use the Appple Apps.

    What is the extension on the file you are trying to open? I just tried to open a .doc (word file) that was attached to a mail message and it opened fine.

    Sounds like there may be a problem with the file being corrupted...I'd have that person resend or try opening it on another device. The native Mail client on the iPad should open with no problem.

    It's really strange but you guys were right, it was the file. I was able to open it on my pc but still not on my ipad. This morning I received another word doc and it opened fine. It was something with that one document, the ipad did not like.

    I was looking at the Pages tutorial, it looks like it'd be a handy thing to have. Has anyone tried it? Is it as east as it looks? Thank you all for your help
