Office Documents and PDF

Hi All,

  I'm new to the BB world and I just wonder how to open / create Office Documents and PDF files on Blackberry. Is there special tools to do so?

Re: Office Documents and PDF

As for part one of the question, I was little bit a novice that OS 7 is bundled with "DocumentToGo" software that opens all the documents above. However, still I don't know how to edit / create such files ..

Anybody knows?

Document To Go just edit your document files. DTG cannot create a document.

If you upgrade to the Premium Edition one of the benefits is the ability to create new documents.

 

But you can also keep "blank" documents on your device then do a Save As.

Yes, also works with Excel and Powerpoint files.   I don't believe you can edit PDFs on a Blackberry (and even on a PC it's unusual but not impossible).

Re: Office Documents and PDF

Yes, I agree that creating a PDF is not as important as reading it - although I got some application name PDF creator Ultimate Free to create PDF with limited functionality. And If Document ToGo is editing documents, we can only keep a template blank document to use it instead of creating new one .. Thanks all for the updates
