Need reader for Word files

I was using Cool Reader to read Microsoft Word files on my Motorola Atrix 2. I liked it very much. Then they released a new version with lots of bells and whistles. I have no problem with the bells and whistles, but I'm no longer able to read Word documents. The problem is that Cool Reader acts like the files are not even loaded into the phone. It doesn't "see" them.

So: I'm looking for either a possible fix or a whole new reader for Word files.

Anyone?

Thanks in advance...

What platform? Microsoft has a free download for a doc reader. Abbiword is also free and runs on a number of platforms.

This belongs in the "E-Book Readers" category (Android Devices) or better yet, in "E-Book Software" (Reading and Management, where it says "Get support for tools to read e-books and to manage / collect them"), not here.
