    How to put word or excel document (as read only) onto Pearl?

    Advertisement



    Can anyone tell me how to put a word or excel document onto the 8100? I understand it will be read only unless I download additional software. Thanks in advance.

    Even if you load it to a microsd card using mass-storage mode from windows, I don't think you can access it with the pearl. The only way to open it for viewing is as an email attachment. Try sending it to yourself?

    Store your doc or xls on the mSD as pdf and when needed send from your bb to your bb. I have doing it on my 8800. Should work for you. The reason for the pdf is to reduce the size.

    I loaded my resume on to my card via desktop manager.
    I think my res was just in a word (.txt) format. Its on the card now its just really goofy to read. Yeah just copy and paste into email or use pdf

    Re: How to put word or excel document (as read only) onto Pearl?

    I tried something called Beamberry, it was a beta, and it did not work at all. So far the only documents I can read are as .txt. Can't read MS word, MS Excel, .PDF. As of now I do not have a data plan,...yeah, I know, but am able to get documents over using media manager, but can't open any of them except .txt.
    Are there any free programs out there?
    Should my BB Pearl be able to read these automatically without additional software?
    Thanks for the help.

    Hey guys i know why it comes up blank when converted to word!
    Right click the pdf file and click properties.At the bottom of the properties window the should be a security thing which has a box that is ticked. It should say that its come from another computer. Untick the box, click apply and then okay. Now try converting it to word.
    I hope i was of help.
    Also, You can get help of online OR free trial PDF to Word conversion websites, such as:
    Nemo excel to pdf converter software is a freetrial pdf converter, you can try it!
