How to import or create a new document in google docs
To Create a new document
You can create a new document right in Docs or in Google Drive.
Import and convert old documents to Docs
If you have existing text documents, such as Microsoft® Word® or Adobe® PDF files, you can import and convert them to Docs.
Go to Google Drive.
Click New > File Upload and choose a text document from your computer. Supported files include .doc, .docx, .dot, .html, plain text (.txt), .odt, and .rtf.
Right-click the file you want to convert and select Open with > Google Docs.
Converting your document from another program creates a copy of your original file in Docs format. You can then edit it in your browser like any other document.
Have a Word document?
If you've already stored Microsoft Word documents in Drive, you can also update them without converting to Docs.
