    I have an HP PC which I use as my laptop. I am planning on purchasing an ipad2 relatively soon. I use MS Word a lot on my current laptop. I am aware that I can create and receive Word Documents on my ipad via Pages. However, this is what I would like to do, and do not know if this is possible:

    Create a document on Pages on my ipad and export it to my laptop in .doc format. Once I open this document in MS Word on my laptop I would like to be able to edit it and send back the edited version to my ipad for review. Is this possible? Thanks

    Yes - certainly. Pages is a stripped down Word-compatible document processor. Any document originated in Pages is 100% compatible with Word. The reverse direction - Word->Pages - about 90%. There's no support for Track Changes in Pages and complex formatting can be a challenge - but, other than that, it's fine..

    Have a look at this....

    The Apple iWorks Office suite for the iPad has a set of useful Help pages that show their capabilities here...

    Pages is Word compatible and can read .doc and .docx files and save in .doc and .pdf

    Keynote is PowerPoint compatible and can read .ppt and .pptx files and save in .ppt and .pdf

    Numbers is Excel compatible and can read .xls and .xlsx files and save in .xls and .pdf
