    My Onedrive app on Ipad Mini opens the Office files in an Excel or Word version which is more advanced than the one I have on my Lumia 920 so Office on Lumia can not open them. How do you expect WP8.1 to be a success when Office functionality is so low and even lower than DocToGo and when are you going to update?

    I'm not quite sure why you are unable to open your word or excel files on your 920. I use the full version of office which is connected to SharePoint and can open my word or excel files without any trouble on my L1020.
    Is there any chance your ipad files are in a mac compatible file format?

    Of course I use an Office version for Mac which also works on Ipad and on Windows-operated computers. Is it too much to expect that WP8.1 can handle that?

    Just for clarity, of course office for Mac does not run on windows based computers. Office for Mac is an old version of office which has not been updated since 2011. However office for iPad is a newer touch based version of Office with many but not all of the features of the current windows based versions of office.

    I would test a word file created in your iPad version of office and see if that would not open in your windows phone office hub, I would be very surprised if it doesn't.
