I have several Word documents with tables and numbered sequences I use for work. When I open them in Pages on my Mac, they are fine. But when I open them on the iPad, there are several incompatibilities and the entire document is changed.


I would consider saving them as PDFs through iBooks, but these documents change often and that is not efficient. I do not have access to cloud storage sites at work and most clouds no longer allow uploading documents via email. I've considered Docs To Go, but several documents with macros are incompatible.


Is there another way to preserve the formatting of the document and still use Pages on the iPad?

iPad 2, iOS 6
