I am creating a application in which i have to open different document like doc, xls,ppt, pdf. I have seen the article documented in knowledge base which uses invocation API to open document, using that API i was successfully able to open doc and ppt document, but i was unable to open excel documents.
As per my understanding and after seaching forum, i came to this conclusion that device can open only those documents which are supported , like for curve series by default device support opening word document and power point document using (Word to Go and Slide Show Go) application.
My question can we open excel document also on same device by upgrading OS of the device or by upgrading "Document to Go" application if yes then how.
Secondly how can i open pdf documents.
Thirdly more thing can be add "Document to Go" application on OS which do not have this application.
Lastly is it possible to add support for any particular document type to "Document to Go" application, for eg device OS supports opening word doc and power point doc , so can make my "Document to Go" application capable of opening excel documents.
Please let me know you valuable inputs on above mentioned questions, any input is valuable.

Also, You can check for updates from a 4.2/4.3 device through slide to go application->Open File->Check for Updates and then download slide to go. You would be required to register.
