    I know it can export a file in Word, but can it open an original Word file to edit? Sorry, I did a search and couldn't get an answer.

    I have a bunch of resumes via Dropbox and want to be able to access them thru my Ipad2 as needed for job submissions.

    Regards,
    Pete

    Okay, just found out on the Apple website that this can be done. Guess I'm going to download Pages to my Ipad now! :)

    One of our members carried out a survey of Office apps for his company; you can see his conclusions in this thread...

    Another comparison was undertaken here....

    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
