Hi, I'm new. Joined to ask help finding EXCEL app(s) that allow creating files from scratch. Just installed "Documents 2". It 'kinda works...' but having trouble totaling a column.
- So I need instruction ....., or info on an easy to use spread sheet that my secretary can open on the office computer using EXCEL / MS Office.
"HELP!"

Documents 2 has some pretty terrible reviews. You can check their support site to see if the developers have any answers, but you might have a problem finding anyone here who uses it.

Here are some reviews of the more popular office suite apps. We seldom hear anything good about the cheaper options, sorry to say.



Compare iWorks, Office 2 HD, Documents to Go, QuickOffice by richsdams

Office Apps Comparison by RedCoil (details and examples, very long)

About QuickOffice, mostly about spreadsheets

It might also be worth your time to check out the new OnLive and CloudOn apps and services. These are cloud based desktops with full versions of Word, Excel and Power Point. They are fairly new and somewhat wobbly, but might be exactly what you need, and they are free in their basic versions.
