[SOLVED] Excel on the iPad

I need a system where I can transport excel files between my iPad and my PC
computer.
I have used the iPad 'numbers' app and have managed to e-mail files from
'numbers' app to my computer in the Excel format. But I don't know of any
way to send Excel files from my computer to the app called 'numbers'.

I want to work on a excel project on my computer and on my iPad and be able
to send the files between the computer and the iPad in both directions.

Is there another office program that can produce and accept Excel type
files?
Or is here a way of sending excel files to the app 'numbers'?

The normal way is to choose iTunes, open the "App"-Tab of the device and
put the document in the documents-field of numbers, then opening "+" on
iPad/numbers and selecting iTunes.

The same way back is also possible.

The usual way is to copy them via iTunes, which Kaledo explained in an
earlier followup.

Another way is to e-mail them to an account you can access on the iPad.
An Excel attachment in Mail on the iPad can then be opened by tapping on
the attachment and choosing Numbers as the destination.

If you have a Dropbox account, you can also leave your Excel document in
the Dropbox folder, and import it into Numbers on the iPad (by selecting
it in the Dropbox app and sending it to Numbers).

Unfortunately you can't export to Dropbox from Numbers.

Dropbox itself can handle Excel files. Just open it in there.

"Documents to Go" will sync between PC, iPod, iPad

Also "OnLive Desktop" will let you work on the files

I use iFunbox which is a free download for your PC. You can drag
files both ways. You can install apps from there too. Diskaid for PC
also works for dragging files both ways.

Hope this helps,
Terry

There is a rumour that Microsoft is working on Office for iPad. Microsoft
are currently denying it, but if it turns out to be true, then that
*should* at least be the most compatible option (if not necessarily the
easiest or best).

It would be amusing to see Tim Cook roll out iOffice Apps today...
