Default Pushing Word Files to BB

Please Login to Remove!

Does anyone know how to push Word (.doc, .docx) documents to the BB local drive and open them in Documents To Go? We have several documents we push to the BB's, including a Disaster Recovery Plan. Should we have a disaster and our network be inaccessible, our employees with BB's need to have access to these documents without relying on a network. These are the things I have tried:

1. Using the Content Handler but I get an error that states it cannot connect to the content handler on the actual BB. It works in the simulator.
2. I've also found a document on the BB site of how to open a word document; however, the file already has to be on the BB.
3. The Emergency Contact List will let you push Excel docs but not Word docs.
4. I can't use the Browser Channel Push because we only want to store the documents local to the BB.

Any other suggestions would be helpful. My ultimate goal would be to have a menu of documents we push to them and the user select which document they would like to open.
