Leonard S. Willis ★★★★★

Very good application. Really helps in organizing data and creating tables and charts.


We all need to use productivity software for word processing, to reconcile budgets, or to make presentations. Apple users have the option to use iWork software, from Apple, to perform these tasks. This is one of three guides that explore the essential features and functions of one of the three applications that make up the iWork Suite. This guide investigates Numbers for Apple’s OSX.

Numbers is a spreadsheet application, and this guide illustrates organising data, managing lists, creating tables and charts, working with data tables and calculations, and how to import, modify and export Microsoft Excel spreadsheets.

About the Author

I am a printmaker, twenty years into my professional creative practice. I use iWork daily as part of my business administration, to write articles and create teaching materials.

I enjoy the process of concept and design, providing solutions to problems both technical and creative. In my series of books on iWork I illustrate many of the features of these excellent software applications. If you are new to iWork please note that Apple provide excellent resources on their web pages. These include videos on many key features. I heartily recommend viewing these before reading through this book.

My creative practice centres on photography and the graphic arts. I combine personal work with commerce – often teaching others about the creative and technical aspects of digital imaging.

My clients include: Apple, Elephorm, Nik Software, and Oxford University Computer Services. I have also contributed articles to The British Journal Of Photography and Macworld Magazine several times.
