    Hi guys,

    Does anyone knows how to select non adjacent cells on Excel for iPad using an Smart Keyboard or Apple Pencil? I am trying to work on a cashflow spreadsheet with my iPad Pro instead my MacBook but it's been very difficult, almost impossible to do some simple things like that.

    Thanks in advance.
    Laco.

    On my Mac I hold down the ⌘ button and click on cells to select them. Why not try doing that with your Smart Keyboard? That should work.

    That was the first simple thing I tried but, unfortunately, didn't work! Thanks for your reply.

    So apparently, some of the forums I searched online have an opinion that Excel doesn't allow selecting non-adjacent cell range. It has something to do with Apple, as it doesn't allow the same in Numbers for iOS as well as Numbers for iCloud.

    It doesn't make sense for me... I use this function a lot to do some fast calculations... I will try to find another app that support this. Thanks for your reply!

    Sure. Hope you find it. Nevertheless, Excel for iOS is really amazing.
