Edit Files

If you have an app on your device that can edit a particular file type, you can open the file from Oracle Content in that other app to edit it.

To edit a file from Oracle Content:

  1. Open the file you want to edit.
  2. It's a good idea to reserve the file before you edit it. That way other people know the file is in use. In the toolbar at the bottom, tap More icon, and then tap Reserve.
  3. Tap Share icon, tap Open In..., and select the app on your device that you'll use to edit the file. The apps that are shown are those that can be used to edit a file of that type.
  4. Edit the file as needed.
  5. Depending on the app you chose for editing the file, you may need to use a menu choice in the app such as Open In..., Send a Copy, or another file sharing option such as a Files Location to send the file to Oracle Content. If you're offline, you can use one of those options after you're reconnected.
  6. Navigate to the folder where you want to store the file. You can save it in its old location (and create a new version) or you can save it as a new file in a different location.
  7. Tap Upload to copy the file to Oracle Content.

If you know you'll be offline soon (for example, if you're boarding a plane and using Airplane Mode), download the file to edit. Then you can work with it even if you're not connected to the Internet.

  1. View the file you want to edit.
  2. In the toolbar at the bottom, tap Share icon, tap Save for Offline.

If you have the Microsoft Word app installed and you have a Microsoft Office 365 subscription, you can open a Oracle Content document and edit that document directly from the Word app.

You must enable Oracle Content as a valid location in the iOS Files app before editing a file.

  1. In Word, tap Open and then tap More.
  2. Tap Browse.
  3. In the Locations dialog, turn on Oracle Content.

To edit a file using Microsoft Word:

  1. In Word, tap Open.
  2. Tap More, then Locations.
  3. Choose the Oracle Content account you want to use from the list.
  4. Find the file you want to edit.
  5. After editing the file, tap Save to save it back to its original location or Save As to choose another location in Oracle Content.
