    Hi all recently rooted phone with MIKG Rom. It has polaris office installed. I have a spreadsheet i am using for work purposes that uses Macros. After transfering the spreadsheet to my sd card i cannot see file. I was wondering if it is possible to even use a excel spreadsheet with macros on the EVO? if not i dont call my smartphone so smart ne more. :D

    Regardless, it should still actually "see" the file. Whatever file browser app youre using doesn't know the sheet has macros, Polaris office will only know that after its been opened. I haven't tried a spreadsheet with macros yet, but I did have a problem with it not showing any formulas when using an xlsx (excel 2007) document. I ended up having to save the file as xls (excel 97-2003) for it to calculate my pre-existing formulas.

    I don't think you can run any macros on smartphones currently

    I've found a list of options at tips-for-excel.com for Android and iPads
