Helping people with computers... one answer at a time.
There are applications available for Android in the Google play store that will allow you to use Microsoft docs. You may need to save them properly on your computer.
Is it possible to read Open Office documents made from a Windows XP OS netbook via a pen drive to a netbook with the Android operating system?
In this excerpt from Answercast #42, I look at reading and editing documents on an Android device.
The short answer is yes.
There are two things you need to be aware of.
The other piece of the puzzle you need is that:
There are applications available for Android in the Google play store that will allow you to open, read and even operate on Microsoft Office formatted documents – including at least both .doc and Excel spreadsheets.
There are, I believe some free tools out there.
At a minimum, they'll let you view documents. But I know that there are actually some small office suites available in the play store that will allow you to operate on (edit, modify, save, etc,) Office compatible documents.
So, have a look in the Android store, in the Google play store.
As long as the documents, as I said, are originally saved in a Microsoft
compatible format, you should be just fine.
