I have a home network that has 2 PCs and a Nexus 7. I have KingSoft Office on the Nexus. I'd lke to access the MS Word folder from one of the PCs, on the Nexus. I have shared the folder on the PC, so the network can see it. But how do I access that folder on the Nexus?

Thanks.

Are you using a file explorer app to see the network? I'm assuming since you say the folder is shared on the network you want to access it wirelessly.

Thanks.

Yes Android has a file explorer app, actually several. One of the free and excellent ones to use, as mentioned in the following link is ES File Explorer from Google Play Android App store.

Instead of reinventing the wheel, and writing the same thing.

An excellent description of 'How to Connect your Android Tablet to a Homegroup Network' by dkahs23 is at the following link:
