Opening existing documents in HCL Docs

After you upload Microsoft Word documents or other document file types to your files list, you can open them in HCL Connections Docs to work with them in a web browser.

About this task

Supported formats include .doc, .docx, .odt, and .txt. For .dot, .dotx, and .ott template files, you can upload them to Connections and create files from them in Connections Docs. To open an existing document in HCL Docs, follow these steps:


  1. Upload a file to the Connections Files application.
  2. Click My Files.
  3. Find the file that you want to open in HCL Docs, and click the file name to go to the File Details view.
  4. Click Edit to open the file in HCL Docs.
  5. Optional: If you want to return to the files list, click open files list button on the toolbar.


Note: Occasionally, certain formatting from uploaded files does not display correctly in HCL Docs although it is preserved in the file. In these cases, when a version is published, you can download the file and use it in its original application.
