    I recently bought an iPad 2 for work and love it! I have been using a PC Laptop and have a few questions in need of some help:

    I normally use MS Word and Excel for creating quotes to customers and print them via a PDF printer to email to my customers. What are the correct Apps I need in order to do this since MS doesn't make their Office Suite available in Apps for iOS? Also, do I need a PDF printer for iOS?

    Thanks in advance....

    One of our members carried out a survey of Office apps for his company; you can see his conclusions in this thread...

    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

    Thanks everyone. So far, I have print n share (also bought the $1 option to print to pdf), so far this app is awesome and works flawlessly! I also bought Numbers, but am having a hard time finding a good WebDAV company to use to store my files.
