Hi all,

I am new to the iPad scene and was wondering if/how I can use ms word on my iPad? I would like to create a new doc for work while traveling so I therefore need to be able open and use in a Microsoft environment once back at work.

For another option, a different web browser could work as I am able to login in to work via a remote desktop but safari doesn't support this process. Also, is icloud another option?

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks,

Jaime

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

Another comparison was undertaken here....

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

+1 to what Tim advised

I use pages on my Mac at work as well as on iPad. It translates to/from Word files with ease.
