    New and purchasing Ipad for my b-day present to myself

    Hi,

    I am new and I am going to purchase an ipad for my b-day as a present to myself.

    I would like to be able to do pivot tables on the ipad without remotely accessing my computer... Will any apps support pivot tables.

    I am new and would love to learn the power and what I can do on the ipad..

    Thanks

    Congrats on getting the iPad. Sorry I don't know of any pivot tables. Try doing a search on itunes and then google. I found a lot of useful info on apps doing searches and then I decided if the app is for me or not. I prefer youtube because most of the time I find the app on there and watch the demo. Good luck.

    I'm pretty sure you can't use pivot tables in any of the Excel-capable apps. See this thread (Pivot Tables in Numbers?) where a bit more discussion is developed.

    I think the main answer is that you'll need Excel to use pivot tables. Which means either not using the iPad or using a remote access app to get into your main computer.

    Sorry.

    Good to hear from you. You’ll find a whole bunch of iPad enthusiasts in this Forum who are only too willing to help other iPad owners and to hear of their experiences. Don’t be afraid to post any questions you may have or use the ‘Search’ button near the top of the Forum web page. I usually find I discover one new interesting and useful piece of information about my iPad every day - and often not even what I was looking for!!

    Hope to hear from you soon with your thoughts about the iPad.

    Have fun and enjoy your iPad

    I pulled the trigger and got my iPad. Ended up going with the 32gb model.

    I think I am in love. Lol
