    I created a spreadsheet in excel which I have imported to Numbers on my iPad.
    It works fine except for one thing.

    I had a RECALULATE button as I have random numbers on the sheet abnd want it to update or CALCULATE() to give me new numbers every time I press the button.

    But I cant duplicate this on the iPad Numbers - and help appreciated.

    Had a look and couldn't find anything either... not even in the help. Seems rather odd for a spreadsheet program! If you re-enter a value that the calculation depends on, would that do it for you?

    BTW, I looked at Docs-to-Go and no joy there either. Very curious.

    Chris,

    I just found this (via Google):

    Apple - Support - Discussions - click to run a function ...

    Not specific to the iPad version, but I'd bet the functionality is similar (and also similar to what I suggested).

    Cheers,
