    No - there is no compatibility - software-wise - between the iPad, Mac or PC. You need a separate app - say Pages (Word), Numbers (Excel) or Keynote (PowerPoint).

    Before you get Pages etc, be aware they make a mess of all but the simplest Word, Excell etc documents, particularly if there are any Tables in them, and you cannot see Track Changes or Comments on the iPad. Personally I find the iPad useless for other than reading them and then only if I have them converted to pdfs first. Stick with the lappie for authoring, editing or reviewing.
