Export to other file formats in Numbers on iPad
To save a copy of a Numbers spreadsheet in another format, you export it in the new format. This is useful when you need to open it with another application or send the spreadsheet to people who use different software. Any changes you make to the exported spreadsheet don’t affect the original.
Note: If the original file has a password, it applies to copies exported in PDF and Excel formats.
