Hi Guys Only a beginner on iPads, but this may help....I downloaded the PAGES app, and am very pleased with it. I have a lot of files on laptop, contained in 2 folders for 2 kids, and thought they will be better copied onto my iPad for when I need them. So with the help of guys on this forum, I used ITunes to transfer doc files to IPad, but when I tried the same with XLS files(excel) iPad would not accept. So after a bit of thought, I opened the files on laptop, did a copy paste to WORD, and saved it as a doc file, which I then could transfer to IPad. Hope it helps.
