    I am in the same position. Have used my .mac apple ID to set up iCloud as would like to keep MM certainly until MS office updates with versions which should enable it to to be iCloud compatible. Maybe it's wishfull thinking but f it doesn't happen, I'll be using Dropbox a lot more after July 2012

    You can upload an excel file to iCloud but I think it's converted to Numbers format as part of the upload. Have got the option of downloading it again as an Excel, but it's not obvious if this is the original file or result of 2 conversions. I suspect the latter. Also no syncing between OS X devices, just upload/download.

    iCloud documents are really just for syncing iWork docs between iOS devices, and facilitating a way to get them to/from OS X at the moment.
