    Hi All...

    I am looking for a solution for my work.

    I read this: "You can pair Apple's Numbers program with iCloud and easily share Excel files between the iPad and a Windows-based workstation."

    How do I do this?

    Any help appreciated. Thanks!!!

    John

    You download the Nambers app, then create the documents, it will uploaded to the iCloud associated to your Apple ID. Go to Windows based computer, open IE/Chrome. Open iCloud using your Apple ID. You will able to edit your document on the browswer.

    Thanks! Will this automatically update the excel program on the Windows server whenever data is inputted from the ipad?

    Let me rephrase that last question. I was in a rush at work and wasn't all there.

    Anyway, what we have is a portal, accessed by our different locations. We collect data, input the data in a spreadsheet on the ipad, and have this data automatically entered in an excel format within the program on our portal.

    I checked out Numbers, it looks perfect. It sends to iCloud, and I understand I can open the file in a Windows environment with the option to open it in excel.

    That gets me 99% of the way there. Am I right in thinking that it's up to our software at this point to connect to a folder containing this data and create excel spreadsheets? Or will it manually have to be opened and copied over?

    Thanks in advance...I'm attempting to look useful at work by figuring this out.

    iCloud.com on the windows machine is probably what that is referring to. I don't believe there is anyway to mark a document 'publicly' accessible so anyone needing it would need access to the apple id for that account.

    the sharing up by the iPad would be via the Numbers App
