    Hi all,
    Just wondering if anyone could assist in helping me open a 'pages' file on my google drive.
    I do not have access to the original file, all I have access to is the uploaded version that exists my google drive account.
    I have tried downloading the pages file and converting it with 'Cloud convert' but neither seem to work.
    Assistance would be greatly appreciated!!

    Assuming the files is on your Google Drive, have you tried clicking on Open this file with..You should see a screen open showing the Google apps which will open the file..Pick one and it should open.

    I presume, perhaps incorrectly that you are NOT trying to open them on a Mac
    If you are, then you should not have a problem
    So please confirm on which machine you are trying to open them

    If you have a Mac and then you are trying to convert the pages files to Word or some other format so that you may then open them on a non Mac -
    then download them from the Cloud to your MAC and follow this
