    Jail breaking does not help in any way to access excel files.

    However, you could use an app, such as Numbers to open them. But keep in mind, that there is no real full desktop equivalent of excel, all excel apps will have reduced functionality.

    google search came up with that and says it opens the needed files that needs to be opened

    I just use my iPad for surfing the net and emails :p

    I use my netbook for other stuff, as I can type a lot faster on a proper keyboard, plus a trackpad is better and more accurate than prodding the screen lol

    The whole thing is that you cannot install Excel 2007 on an iPad, jailbroken or not. Until Microsoft itself creates an iOS version of their office suite you will have to use something else.

    Personally, I prefer Documents To Go Premium. Been around since the Palm Pilot days and is (from my experience) the most compatible.

    I used to use office2 on iPhone but since getting iPad and iworks, I use it all the time! It's interesting everyone has their own preferences. I suppose it depends on what you need it for!
