    What I have done with docs I needed to review and edit later was to upload it to either my Google Docs (via Google email) or SkyDrive (Hotmail email) and then opened and edited my changes using Cloudon. It is nice for simple/short documents. I have also used thebapp, Dropbox to view docs such as PDFs, word, PowerPoint and excel docs. Hope that helps.

    Hi there - thank you for your advice- I have tried google drive also and a number of apps- I can get it open it just won't go I to to to alter text- can only select all- I may be making a really fundamental schoolboy error - insult really dot get it- I love my iPad but sometimes can be frustrating- I realise its just a learning curve at adjusting to a new bit of tech- I consider myself pretty computer savvy and am supposed to be attaining my mum up in apple products which is a complete nightmare as she is a Moderator's edit: words which could be considered offensive have been removed. Please take care with your language and keep it respectful. You have been warned before dinosaur : ) am sure I will figure this out eventually- thanks once again - jambo :

    I can only share with you what I have used. That is with uploading via Google Doc or SkyDrive. Once there, I access those files on Cloudon. It is free from the AppStore and can be found here:

    https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/cloudon/id474025452?mt=8

    Here are a few screenshots to show you what I can do to a doc that I have uploaded and began to edit.

    You can also do a rename of the file or a number of things to the file using Cloudon. See below:

    Maybe you should give Cloudon a try....or perhaps others with the use of the app you are using can chime in.

    Once you sign in on Cloudon to your SkyDrive account, your doc that you have uploaded through SkyDrive will show up. Just press the doc and it should open for you. So upload the most recent document you have and it should work.
