    Hi Everyone, I'm Bron and I have a new iPad, which I think I love BUT I am growing to dislike it. I suppose that I am thankful that I have found this site.

    I have searched and searched to find out how and why I can't get my microsoft excel sheets to open properly on my iPad.

    Ok I purchased Documents to Go and it was a no go, I purchased Numbers and it was shocking as well.

    I got the iPad as I am a rep and I was sick of lugging my laptop around everywhere, and then when I get home working longer hours, this is so compact but it is useless if I can't get the right software.

    Our company only supports Microsoft applications and oh yes I can use Citrix through them, but this is so slow...

    I really look forward to getting some help with this as I am renting this iPad as otherwise I will just have to put it in the back of the cupboard.

    Thanks heaps

    Bron :(

    Can you describe the problems you are having with Numbers? Most Members don't have any difficulty with this app. For sure, it's a stripped down version of the desktop equivalent, but the iPad was never intended to replace a PC. If you let us know what problems you're having, perhaps we can find some workarounds.
