I suggest you try the app MobileFiles Pro, I think you'll find it does the job


From their web site:

Extensive File Format Support:
MobileFiles Pro will list any files without restriction. However, only the following file types can be viewed or played on the device:

    * Images: .jpg, .jpeg, .png, .tif, .tiff, .gif and .svg
    * Microsoft Word: .doc and .docx
    * Microsoft Excel: .xls and .xlsx
    * Microsoft PowerPoint: .ppt and .pptx
    * iWork: Pages, Numbers & Keynote
    * Adobe Acrobat: .pdf
    * Web Pages: .htm and .html
