    I'd like to be able to edit some MS Word files on my iPad.

    I have Quick Office, but it does not support table of contents, headers, footers, or outlining. Before I spend more money on a fool's errand, is there a word processor for the iPad that supports this? If not, such is life. I just don't want to buy a hundred bucks worth of apps to find out the answer is no.

    Thanks!

    Check out Pages($9.99). Seems a little steep, but it allows for all of the formatting options you mentioned and more. Great processor app for iPad (IMO).

    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

    I realize it's a PITA but you should definitely contact iTunes via the contact phone number provided and let them know that Quick Office doesn't work for you and why. They'll refund your purchase price. Frankly, you may find that none of the apps (e.g. Documents to Go, Office HD, Pages) fully support your requirements. But other than the effort you expend in testing them, you shouldn't have to bear the financial cost, as well.

    P.S. Don't know about the other apps, but the folks at DataViz (Documents to Go) should be able to answer your questions without first purchasing the app.

    Good point and many thanks. As the previous poster pointed out - if you call the toll-free Apple Support line with your iTunes transaction reference number you'll be given a refund as a credit to your iTunes account.

    Thanks, jsh1120!!
