How do you transfer .xls and .doc documents from my computer to iCloud ?

From my desktop to the web icloud.

When I try:

"A problem occurred while downloading a document. Please try again in a few moments"

But it's still impossible.

Thank you for the answer.

iMac (20-inch Early 2008), Mac OS X (10.7.3)

    Hello syrph72,


    I am afraid this format can't be uploaded to iCloud as it is a Microsoft proprietory format.

    You need to use a format used by either Pages or Numbers or Keynote as the main goal of iCloud is keeping your documents in sync among all your iOS devices and the Mac.

    First, I'm French.

    See below the available literature in French after the English documentation.




       Documents in the Cloud

      You can create amazing documents and presentations on your iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. And now with iCloud, you can keep your work up to date across all your iOS devices. You don’t have to save your work or transfer any files. Your documents — with all your latest edits — automatically appear everywhere. iCloud is already built into Apple iOS apps like Keynote, Pages, and Numbers. It can also work with other iCloud-enabled apps. So you can do things like create a spreadsheet on your iPad and make edits to it on your iPhone. Or start sketching on your iPod touch and add the finishing touches on your iPad at home.



       Documents dans le nuage. Et sur votre Mac ou PC.

      iCloud facilite le transfert de documents Pages, Keynote et Numbers entre votre ordinateur et vos appareils iOS. Il vous suffit de vous connecter à icloud.com/iwork depuis n’importe quel navigateur web récent et tous vos documents iWork pour iOS seront là , assortis de vos dernières modifications. Cliquez sur un document pour le télécharger au format iWork ’09, Microsoft Office ou PDF. Vous pouvez aussi glisser n’importe quel document iWork ’09 ou Microsoft Office depuis votre ordinateur vers l’une des apps iWork d’icloud.com, et il apparaîtra automatiquement sur tous vos appareils iOS, prêts à être révisés, modifiés ou présentés.

    I know it says that, but it does not work very well, not at all for some.
