Save and name spreadsheets in Numbers on iPad
Numbers automatically saves your spreadsheet as you work and gives it a default name. At any time, you can rename the spreadsheet or create a duplicate of it with a different name.
Rename a spreadsheet
Open the spreadsheet you want to rename.
Tap the spreadsheet name, then tap Rename.
Type a new name, then tap anywhere outside the text field to save it.
To quickly delete the current name, tap the “x” in the text field.
Save a copy of a spreadsheet
Open Numbers, and if a spreadsheet is already open, tap Spreadsheets in the top-left corner to see all your spreadsheets.
Touch and hold the spreadsheet thumbnail, lift your finger, then tap Duplicate.
The duplicate appears with a number appended to its name.
If you don’t see the spreadsheet you want to copy, try searching for it, or tap Browse or Recents at the bottom of the screen. See Find a spreadsheet in Numbers on iPad.
