Can you use Microsoft Excel on an iPad pro
I have a 30 page catalogue of the model soldiers that my husband collects. This is constantly being updated and added to. It is contained in pages of Microsoft Excel and each page carries a running total which in turn adds on to a cumulative page, which also shows the running total of figures.
I have had this catalogue on various laptops (presently on a Sony Vaio) but am contemplating changing to an iPad pro. I already have an iPad Air and a iPhone and have been very impressed by their performances. I just need to know whether this could be continued on an iPad pro??
Many thanks in anticipation.

Yes, you can Sheila, but you'll need a subscription to Microsoft Office 365. If you're a teacher or work in an education setting like a school it is likely that you can get a discounted rate for it. Check out Microsoft's site and look up Microsoft Office. There will be a help or contact number to reach out to and ask how you might purchase it. A good time to ask more about this would be when you go to an Apple Store and buy your iPad Pro. I've had mine for just under a year now and love it. My iPad Pro is the 12.9 inch model that has a 512 gig solid state drive. That allows me to store all my photos and videos on it when I visit family and friends even if they have not internet service and live in a rural area with no internet connection.
I found a great deal of good information on what you are asking about by doing this little search in Google: excel iPad pro I then used my tools option to limit my search results to the past year. Wanted to let you know also that buying a keyboard for my iPad Pro helped me a great deal in writing. I have never been able to get used to the keyboard on the screen. Too used to my desk top and notebook computers. Ha... Hope this helps you. P.S. I've always found the help and genius bar people at apple stores to be very helpful. Their sales staff too are very knowledgeable and good communicators that are willing and able to spend the time to help. I hope what I've written here will help you to make your decision.
