    Numbers...... Help

    Hi. Newbe to ipad and have tried to read all posts on this BB but not getting anywhere fast. I have purchased numbers app and have transfered some files from my PC to the Ipad. But when I open them on numbers I cannot find the tool bars in the numbers app. Even when I open a new spread sheet no tool bars appear. In the operating distructions they show a pic with all the tool bars and explanations. Can anyone put me out of my misery? Or am I just dumb? Thanks in advance

    Double tap a cell and he number pad will pop up. The tool bar is a above the keypad where it shows "42", a clock, "T" and "=." Tap the "=" and you'll see keys for functions, text, calendar and logical entries. That's all the tools I've been able to find. I haven't sorted out how to format fonts yet. Still working at it.

    With a cell, table or pretty much anything selected tap the 'i' icon at the top for your options, styles, etc. You can also access Help, or the overall document formatting by using the wrench icon.

    Thanks guys I had that info and have used them and have been playing with them. I found from an APPLE site a help for Numbers08 which shows different tool bars and was trying to get that to come up on the version that I have just downloaded. The " Numbers Window" was on page 20 of Numbers 08 PDF File for the ipad. This page looks similar to a MS Exel layout with all the options shown on top of the spread sheet. Has numbers changed ? Dont know how to find out what yersion I have.
    Thanks for your input thus far.

    Numbers 08 is an OSX program for Macs, Numbers for iPad is a much cut down version designed to run on iOS so the guide you have will not be a great deal of use to you.
