Log in to Dropbox on the iPad (app/website) and then open the file in an appropriate app that can open it - Dropbox usually just gets the file to the iPad it doesnt usually do the opening of it

I tried to do what the answer from Mark suggested but am confused still. Did not work.

I open my iPad, sign in and there is a ''desktop" of icons, one of which is the Dropbox. This is opened. On LHS is back   save settings    Upload.

below is a list.

rename all

upload to

new

choose a different folder.

The other larger side of screen, a darker grey is empty.

What do I do now ?
