I'm having problems opening pdf and excel spread sheets from my microsoft exchange email. It will start the download process, but will never actually download anything. Any suggestions?

Why don't you try the Download all Files App from Android Market.

When you press to open the file does it give you a list of options/programs to open the file with?
Have you deleted Thinkfree Office from your Tab?

Have not deleted thinkfree. What will that do? When I click on the file I want to download it just starts downloading. The only problem is it never downloads. It shows up as a ongoing download.

Have you tried saving the attachements to your external micro SD card first and then try opening them from there? I sometimes can't open attachements from within email client, but can if I save them first.

There is not a option to save the file. When I click on it imediately starts to download. There is a note to right click in order to to save the file. Is there any way to right click on the tab? Could it be a security issue in microsoft webmail?

If you click & hold you might get an option to save. Otherwise it might be a security issue. I've not used MS exchange on Tab but when I use it on PC I can only view attachments if I right click and save first.

Yeah, tried that and it didn't work. I think it is a security issue.
