]Something odd happening on my iPad Opening Number on my iPad and before I even get into one of my folders to open a document it randomly copies all the documents. I can open the originals but not the copies which I have to delete. I have also noticed that the icon for numbers instead of being in colour is in grey

Hello - I don't completely understand your question but am assuming that you are having problems w/Numbers, the spreadsheet app on the iPad - correct? If so, you might want to try the steps below; however, if I've misunderstood your question then please post back - good luck! :)

When an app (or several) are misbehaving, I usually go through the following steps:

1. Force Close - open the multi-tasking bar (double tap the 'home buttom' or use multi-gesturing and swipe up); press & hold an app until all begin to 'jiggle'; find the offending app(s) and press the 'red circle w/ minus sign' - return to the home screen & try again.

2. Restart - press & hold the 'Sleep/Awake' (a.k.a. power) button until a red slider appears (may take a few seconds) - move the slider to turn off the iPad; then press & hold the same button until the Apple logo appears - wait for a restart.

3. Reset - press & hold the 'Power' and 'Home' buttons simultaneously until the Apple logo appears - this may take a longer time, so have patience; the iPad will 're-boot' - NOTE that none of these maneuvers will alter your apps, files, or settings.

It's the app itself. If I tap on number as soon as it opens for some odd reason any saved document I have in numbers the app actually copies every single one. The number icon (document) is saved on the numbers desktop but its greyed out. So I have twenty saved documents then the app does another twenty documents but you cannot do anything with them except delete them.

I have done a reset and that has not worked sadly

How about saving documents elsewhere (Dropbox/iCloud) then delete the app and re-download and install. Then copt the original documents. Sounds as if the app is either corrupted (unlikely) or had not installed correctly.
