    How to open Xlsx files on iPad

    There are lots of xlsx files on ipad. Xlsx files are Excel spread sheet files. There are several useful data stored in those files such as username and passwords, website links, contact number, address etc. The problem is I cannot open those files. Is there any software that will open xlsx files in ipad.

    Does your ipad contain any kind of Office Suite? Does your tablet support the Xlsx file format? If there is no office suite installed in your then get quickoffice. As far as I know that both support the M$ Office 2007/2010 file formats.

    You should download the Apple iWorks Office suite. This application suite contains a set of useful capabilities.
    • Pages is compatible with Word and capable to read .doc and .docx files and also possible to save in .doc and .pdf
    • Keynote is meant for PowerPoint and allow us to read .ppt and .pptx files and you can also save in .ppt and .pdf
    • Numbers is used to view Excel files such as .xls and .xlsx files and save in .xls and .pdf

    Did you get the GoodReader from the Apple App Store? (it's $4.99 USD). By using this app you are not allow to edit the files but you can open and view .xls and .xlsx Excel files. It is not a great app but it is enough to simply read XlsX files.

    Users those who are using the iPad and would like to use their device into a productivity machine, then there should be an Office app installed. It is used to create and edit documents and/or spreadsheets. If you look into the App Store, you will get number of apps with mixed positive reviews. It is your intention to choose the right one.

    I have just looked into the Quickoffice website and there I saw a new version of app and that is specifically meant for ipad. The Quickoffice Pro HD for iPad app features tapping, scrolling and dragging which you cannot see in previous version of Quickoffice. The main features are as follows:
    • High-Definition
    • Advanced Touch Control
    • Power-Edit Mode
    • Single-Screen Viewing
    • Cloud Compatibility

    Most of you might not know that, there is no such apps those are capable to edit spreadsheets on an iPad. Also there are no such apps which support all the features of Excel. So don’t expect that you lose some formatting while opening excels files in ipad. Even though if the any app opens the Xlsx sheets, you are not able to get charts, graphics, and certain advanced features.

    Numbers for the iPad is best option for your needs. You can get it for $10 from the Apple store. This app will import documents in Excel or Numbers for Mac formats. This app will features many things from spreadsheet including input forms and 2D charts. Also there is an import and export service for incoming and outgoing. That service called DropDAV. The service costs $5 per month.
