    Well ~

    My reports I open in Drop Box won't edit in Pages. I mean why would it be that easy. They open in Good Reader, which is not an editing app, but a viewing app I discovered.:(

    So, what I did was copy a report and paste it into Pages! So I can edit it.:D

    Disappointingly the iOS separates documents that can be seen by apps from each other. So one app cannot usually see documents from another App. It's like a file system for kindergarteners. Designed to avoid security holes, but also to let Apple control what content you can have on their....err, your device. :)

    So ~ Apple tells folks how to make their apps and what to allow and not? That does not seem right!

    But what do I know ~

    Drop box compatible app

    Try Quickoffice. It interfaces with Word and Excel.
