    Does any app allow you to view excel charts? I don't need to create charts on the iphone but would like to view charts. I have searched but not found anything.

    Most of the file storage apps will let you view Excel tables.

    The one I mainly use is "Files" which offers support for "Most Microsoft Office documents are viewable, including limited support for XML documents (Office 2007)."

    Another popular one is "Airsharing" which also offers support for "Microsoft Office (Word, Excel and Powerpoint), with limited support for XML formats."

    You can also view them in mail (at least in Yahoo).

    Gillybean, thanks for the reply. Specially I want to view excel "Charts". I have tried many of these including idisk and quickoffice but none seem to allow you to look at charts created in excel. I can see the underlying excel data but not the charts.

    I just created a simple excel workbook and chart and uploaded it to the "Files" app, and they seemed to display okay.

    Here's what it looks like on the iPhone:

    With gillybean's and iphone.aggie's help here is what I have found out.

    iphone mail app, idisk, readdledocs, files, all will show very basic excel charts (basically line charts).

    You cannot show more complicated charts like scattergrams on the iphone.
