Hi Guys, As an older type of person who is not really a computer expert I could use a little advice here. Probably the best way to explain this is for me to tell you what I THINK may work and then for you to tell me why it won't. lol OK, I have an old netbook with a lot of Microsoft Office Word files that I would like to copy/paste across to my iPad 2 so that I can read, edit and add to them. All 3 of those actions are very important. I plan to make a copy of all the files and save it to the desktop of the Netbook. This will be the copy that I work with and the original will be kept safe just in case it all goes pear shaped. I will then convert the copy to .epub. It should then be possible to upload the files to iTunes and then a quick sync with the iPad and Bob's your Aunt Fanny. Will that do the trick or is there a simpler way? Cheers, Steve.
