    You can try this app to open pdf files from sd card:
    PDF Reader | Windows Phone Apps+Games Store (United States)

    There's no way to open office files in sd card. just move your files to your phone memory and you can get work on it.

    There is two or three apps with name "PDF Reader" in the store.
    One is created by Microsoft and has an orange logo, it can't show pdf files from SD Card.

    And there is another one with purple logo (link in @Oris post above), it can show pdf files from SD Card. (see screenshots of that app)
    After installing it, swipe right to see "SD Card" section, your PDF files will listed there.

    If you are unable to get an app in your country, put your office files etc in SkyDrive. That way you will be able to view them.

    Just change your region to US and restart your phone. After you do that, it will appear in the store.

    this actually works, even after I changed my region back,

    and downloaded Metrotube which also wasn't available before.

    many thanks.

    Guys it is way too easy. Just connect ur windows phone 8 to pc... Open the file explorer and put whichever office related file in a folder called documents in phone memory. Viola.. It will appear in the office app on ur phone.
