Default Opening files from windows shares via BES?

Please Login to Remove!

Not sure if this is possible.
It would be nice to have the ability to browse windows shares from BB via BES and open documents and spreadsheets etc?
Is this possible in any way?

thanks
Mike

Not possible natively with current version of BES. Take a look at WICKSoft Mobile Documents.

You can also use the free version of Mobile File Manager from Rove to view windows shares. You can open/edit text files with it, but other docs need to emailed to you to open. You can email right from the program.

Thanks Scott, I'd actually tried this and used the email to self trick,just seems very cluncky.
I'm sure this is a much needed addition but perhaps seen as not being part of the 'core' blackberry OS.

Thanks, I have contacted them. Looks nice, not sure of price though.
