It seems Microsoft Word isn't available for the iPad. Is there an alternative that can be used?
Sorry, just stumbled across the iPad forum *doh*
Maybe this would of been better in their.

Now moved to its proper place As for creating docs on the iPad, you could try apps such as Pages or Evernote.

Pages is good, but more basic. Can export to .doc

What level of functionality do you need? You get free note-taking app pre-loaded; at other end of spectrum Apple Pages (£6.99) gives you tons of functionality and you can save/import in Ms Word format
I like Chapters to keep docs and more together; remember there's a world of such tailored apps to explore

NeoOffice is a free app.
Haven't used it with an iPad, but on an iMac I actually preffered it to W**d - and you get regular software updates.
I tried various different free apps, some of which were not too bad. However, I got to the point where I really needed something a bit more structured so I took the plunge and bought the full iWorks suite - Pages (Word), Numbers (Excel) and Keynote (Powerpoint). They cost £6.99 for each one and I have to say I was really impressed with the functionality of each. OK so they're not full Microsoft applications but for they fulfill all my needs for my office stuff. Pages is partucularly easy to use I find, especially when creating/formatting documents with images incorporated. Word always confuses me with the positioning of the text etc but in Pages you just drag the picture around and the text auto wraps accordingly.
Once done, simply save to iPad (auto backup to cloud) and share via email, iWork, iDisk whatever. You can wireless print as well but it does need a device that supports air print.
I've not used it myself but you could investigate this http://desktop.onlive.com/

Thanks all, very helpfull
What level of functionality do you need?
I have a headed letter with company logo that i either need to replicate on the iPad or somehow transfer the one i use on an iMac using Word, if it can be done on Apple Pages i think that would be the answer but i'm unsure
All you need is email a word document with your company's logo to yourself. Then open the email on your iPad & select "open in pages". This will get imported in Pages. Simples!
What he said
Docs to go is also an alternative, it's a bit cheaper compared to iWorks, it does the trick for me and works well with MS office.

I read somewhere the new Glaxy Tab 2 (7. is Alternative For iPad - and it is one of cheapest gadget?
http://www.etechmag.com/2012/05/20/galaxy-tab-2-7-0-alternative-ipad.html what is truth behind this?
Yes there is lot of alternatives for word in ipad one of them is Quickoffice Pro HD and it is also good & reliable.
Chapters is really good and organized. Evernote's not bad either but I mostly use the former.
"Every atom in your body came from a star that exploded. And the atoms in your left hand probably came from a different star than your right hand. It really is the most poetic thing I know about physics.
You are all stardust.You couldn't be here if stars hadn't exploded. Because the elements, the carbon, nitrogen, oxygen, iron, all the things that matter for evolution weren't created at the beginning of time. They were created in the nuclear furnaces of stars. And the only way they could get into your body is if the stars were kind enough to explode.So forget Jesus. The stars died so you could be here today."
