    I need to be able to view a relatively simple excel spreadsheet, and change the values of some cells. I do not need any additional editing capability.
    If I need to change the spreadsheet I will do it on my computer.
    Does such an app exist?

    Actually Spreadsheet has gotten some mized reviews and seems to be the leader out there right now.

    Have you considered PDFing your excel files? Since you only wish to view it?

    I use Documents to Go by DataViz. Right now you can view/edit/save Word files & only view Excel files. They are releasing a new version (submitted to Apple) for the ability to view/edit/save excel files.
    I've been using it for a few months with no problems. Hopefully there update for excel will handle formula heavy files without problems.

    QuickOffice will let you view and edit Excel files, plus it has the ability to access files that are attached to emails (though you have to forward the email to a server first). You can also email the file afterwards.

    Dataviz have submitted an update to Apple that will allow viewing and editing of Excel files. (The current price will go up when the update is approved but the update will be free to all who have the current version). Downside is that DocsToGo has a slightly different way of getting at attachments in emails - you need either an Exchange account (though Google now has Exchange ActiveSync, but DTG can't at the moment access it, for some reason that DataViz are looking into). Or you can use their desktop sync mechanism.

    Of the two, I prefer Docs To Go, but use QuickOffice when I need to get at email attachments. Hopefully DataViz will sort out the Exchange problem soon.

    QuickOffice is great for creating and working with Excel files. It is *almost* full-featured- the one glaring omission is the lack of ability to sort.
