    Is there a way that i can view an excel spreadsheet with Macros and use it as designed on the tablet? i can open excel without macros and even add/alter but when there are macros is doesn't open the file.

    I am desperate for a solution as I am required to roll this out in the business as a solution.

    Thanks in advance

    There are ways and apps to get Excel spreadsheets on a phone/tablet here is a link you may be interested to read.

    Your problem may not have a solution yet as it requires an app that supports/mimics VBA which is the interface used to create Macros in Office Suite. I have Googled this in many variations and found nothing about VBA being available for Android.

    Another interesting find is at this thread, but you will have to do some research and may need to rewrite your macros for this environment.
