    There are several ways that you can do this. I find the simplest is to email myself (from my Windows PC) the documents I want and then receive them using the iPad Mail program. Then, when they are displayed in iPad Mail, if you touch and hold the document it will offer you the opportunity to 'Open in QuickOffice' (OK - I don't have QuickOffice, but I have Apple Pages, which is the Apple Office Word compatible program and that's the option that I get there).

    I also subscribe to the Apple MobileMe service, which gives you access to iDisk. From your PC (via the MobileMe iDisk website) you can upload documents to iDisk. Having subscribed to iDisk, you get an iDisk app on your desktop on the iPad and, from there, you can see all the files that you've uploaded and you can download them into compatible apps on the iPad. Also, from within Pages at least, you can directly download from iDisk without going into iDisk app itself.

    I know a lot of other Forum members recommend GoodReader; I don't personally have any experience of that, but either emailing or MobileMe work just fine.

    I'm sure that other more experienced Forum members will give you better advice.

    Enjoy your iPad

    You can also sign up for Dropbox, a cloud storage program. You get 2gb of storage free (can get more if you pay) and you put a program on your computer. Once it's installed, you get a folder on your computer that's just like a file folder - you can cut, copy, paste, drag and drop info to it.

    The cool thing about this is (1) it's free and (2) once you have a Dropbox account, you can access it anywhere (if you don't have access to your home computer, you can go to Dropbox's web site, sign in and still acess your folders).

    QuickOffice is able to use/access Dropbox...

    Hi Marilyn,

    I have downloaded Dropbox onto the ipad how do I get it on my PC, just by going to the Dropbox website and downloading to my PC or will I access it via iTunes?

    I'll vote for dropbox too... Then what I do is download the docs from Dropbox on Ipad to Goodreader (a great file mgmt system) and then you should be set.

    iDisk works for me. I have my whole directory structure on it. So, I can access the files from any device, anywhere.

    iWork is a good application for syncing office documents to iPad. I have some easy steps for syncing files with iWork app. You connect your iPad to computer, Click iPad device in iTunes. There you can sync any document with iWork application in iPad.

    I use docs to go and I must say I was impressed on how simple it was to sync all my Microsoft docs to my iPhone and iPad via wifi.
