    Well that's the iPad purchased and set up. Now I need to transfer my MS Office files to the iPad for editing with Pages and Numbers. The only way I can work out to transfer them is to e-mail them. I don't really understand iCloud and had some issues with it when I first updated my iPhone. Things like iTunes constantly opening up on my computers, etc. Therefore, I have pretty much avoided iCloud. So, is there an easier way to do it than e-mail as I will be looking to transfer the files backwards and forwards between iPad and computers.?

    Thanks in advance.

    If you install dropbox on one computer must you install it on your iPad and on your other computers?

    Yes. That's my understanding. Anywhere you want to share the files you will need Dropbox installed.

    Just a query on DropBox. I've transferred some Excel files to my iPad using DropBox. When I open them on the iPad in DropBox they don't seem to be editable so I open it using Numbers and make my changes. How do I then move the updated version back to DropBox for Syncing? I can see how to move via email, WebDAV, iWork and a couple of others but not DropBox. I'm sure it's straightforward enough. Any ideas?
