Archived - Numbers '09: Importing a document from another application
You can create a new Numbers spreadsheet by importing a document created in Microsoft Excel or AppleWorks 6. Numbers can also import files in comma-separated value (CSV) format, tab-delimited format, and Open Financial Exchange (OFX) format.
From AppleWorks, you can import spreadsheets only.
Here are ways to import a document:
- Drag the document to the Numbers application icon. A new Numbers spreadsheet opens, and the contents of the imported document are displayed.
- In Numbers, choose File > Open, select the document, and then click Open.
If you can't import a document, try opening the document in another application and saving it in a format Numbers can read, or copy and paste the contents into an existing Numbers spreadsheet.
You can also export Numbers spreadsheets to Microsoft Excel, PDF, and CSV files.
