I'm using my iPad for school (using numbers, pages and keynote, for most of my work.
My teachers (except one) are all using PC's, all of them are using PowerPoint, Excel and Word.

The problem comes when i try to send my work to them.
I change the format to .excel but when i open them on my PC, they look quite bad.

It's as if the text gets so much larger, and it just ends up looking terrible.

Funny thing is that i have no problems with Pages or Keynote.

Here's a photo of how it looks after sending it from my iPad:

As you see, the second version looks much nicer.
I feel ashamed of turning my work in, when it looks like ****, but mostly i fear it may affect my grades.
I usually get 10 or 12 (12 would be an A, 10 is the next thing after), i fear that i wont be getting anymore A's when it looks like ****.

Sorry if you have a few problems understanding this (im kind of hung over).

Don't know the answer to your question, but for $20 you can get Quickoffice HD which lets you edit and save Word, Excel, Powerpoint files in Office format up to Office 2010 without loosing any formatting.

Have you tried changing the text size to something smaller on the iPad and seeing if it then looks better in Excel?
