I know the question of excel has been brought up multiple times, but I have a specific question that I can not find an answer to. I want to buy an iPad, but I need it to run a full version of Excel. I work from a complex template containing data validation, macros, a specific format, and a few thousand formulas. Will Numbers run a few thousand formulas, fully import/export data validation, fully import/export all macros, and maintain all formatting? Does anyone know if Microsoft intends to develop an office sweet for iPad that will allow Excel files to run in their native form? Thank you for your thoughts.
