    Nothing yet that supports this. For the life of me I can't understand why not, it is such a terrific way to take advantage of the small screen real estate we have to endure. It's really annoying that one of the most important business tools, the spreadsheet, is in fact so totally useless on the iPhone/iPad.

    It's doubly vexing as for years I had this capability with Spread CE on PPCs!

    Cheers,

    Hi,
    I have just joined the forum to get an answer to drop down lists on the ipad.
    I haven't bought one yet as I have been searching the internet for the last few months to see if anyone has come up with a solution for drop down lists.
    Numbers on the mac does not support this either by the way, as i have tried to import my excel spreadsheet with the drop down, but it is not recognized.

    If someone can help , there will be a lot of happy people out there:)

    Drop-down on ipad

    I have explored this capability exhaustively (I think) with no solution:

    Drop down lists apparently do not work on the iPad.

    1.created on iWork - Pages - to iPad Pages
    2. created on iwork - Numbers - to iPad Numbers
    3. created in Word 2008 - to iPad QuickOffice
    4. created in Excel 2008 nd 2011 - to iPad QuickOffice
    5. created in Google Docs - to iPad - Google Docs.
    5. saved using variations of word and excel to Google docs

    Shared files via Dropbox, iDisk, MobielMe, Google docs, etc.

    No dice.

    The only potential solution is Google forms and spreadsheets, but there seems to be limited capability to edit and customize the form for my purposes.

    If anyone finds a way to use drop-down on the ipad, please post here.

    Thanks!

    Yes. FM Pro on Mac or windows and then FileMaker Go on iPad and or iPhone. If need be the record or records you are browsing could then be sent as an excel file directly from FileMaker Pro.

    Sent from my iPhone using iPF

    I have not tried my Mac to my iPad yet BUT there IS a way to make drop down menus on the numbers app for iPad.

    1) click on cell
    2) click on paint brush symbol in top right corner
    3) click on FORMAT tab (far right tab, you'll also see Tables, Headers, Cells next to it)
    4) click on Pop-Up Menu
    5) Add and Edit Away!!

    Hope this helps y'all, I know it just made my life easier!
