Do we need to download MS Office separately to view and edit MS word files on Galaxy Tab 10.1? Sometimes, my word files (1993-2000 version files) do not open.

1. How do we attach files and send them through yahoomail, hotmail and gmail using Galaxy Tab 10.1? I don't see 'attach' option in the compose mail screen.

You need to be in the "compose" screen, then "Add attachment" should be available via the Menu button.

MS Office is a Windows program...your OS is Android....

You need one of these programs...free ones will display Word/Excel documents, "paid for" ones will allow editing too
