    I have a spreadsheet of all my cardio workouts. It's fairly simple but a little large since it goes back to 2004. On my Mac Pro it's about 750KB. When I make changes and save/export to iWork file on my iPad it would crash about 1/2 way. Reset and it finely worked although it takes over 10 minutes to export. When I connect and save to my Mac Pro the file size has ballooned to over 8 MB. :confused: Also some of the formatting is wrong. Obviously Numbers on the iPad is corrupting and/or can't handle a file this size. Have others had simular problems using larger files? Had to use Time Machine to restore file since the iPad/Numbers screwed the file up.

    quote part only from above.

    Below is a list of the changes that are made to Numbers for Mac spreadsheets that are imported and converted to the Numbers for iPad optimized file format:

    3D charts are converted to 2D charts. Chart data is retained and editable.
    Grouped objects are ungrouped. Styles, order, and location are retained.<
    Hidden rows or columns are unhidden. Cell content is retained.
    Conditional formatting is removed from imported spreadsheets. Cell content is retained.
    Merged cells are unmerged. Cell content is retained.
    Table Categories are removed. Tables remain organized and category names are retained as static text.
