    I get alot of work e mails with excel attachements. When I try to open them, I get a message that says "Quickoffice unable to open document"


    Is there a way to open them up? or can someone suggest an app to get from the market? Hopefully a free one LOL LOL

    Thanks!!!

    OfficeSuite Pro or
    DocumentsToGo

    Both have free trials and paid versions cost 15$ ; I don't know which one is better.. probably which ever one is downloaded more frequently and I think that's DocumentsToGo.

    Supports printing over wifi or bluetooth, either through a pc/mac or directly to the printer.

    If you just want a viewer:

    ThinkFree Office Mobile Viewer Lite
    Or
    OpenOffice Document Reader

    They're free!

    Depending on how complicated your Excel files are, they may not work at all. Our company uses spreadsheets with custom macros (Visual Basic) and they cannot be used on any non-full-Excel program I've found so far. I'd pay quite a bit for an Android program that allowed me to run custom macros and VBA programs. :frown:

    Being able to run macros would present some major security issues. Your company would be better off getting a dev to make a business specific app... or something like that. VBA is not really a true programming language because it's above the application level. Not saying its not useful, I use it all the time, but for a mobile platform a business specific app would be the way to go.
