Office suite pro and document files that have been created with it. The tablet doesnt have a usb port.

ok, the application you will need to install again from the Play store, applications you cannot copy over.
For the files, can you still actually use the Tablet?

Tha tablet works I think but there is no screen
Expert:  Richard replied 2 years ago.
ok, if you cannot operate the Tablet you will not be able to get the files off it sorry.
To get the files we would need to install an App on the Tablet, but as you cannot use it this is not possible.
I advise on your new tablet you install the app Dropbox and use this to store your files online, so that you would never have this issue.
But with this Tablet, without being able to use the screen, it is not possible sorry as there is no way to control it.
