ExcelRT iOS

The ExcelRT app runs on an iPhone or iPad. Several downloaded Products from different vendors can be installed in ExcelRT.

Each Product consists of a licensing process, a file management screen to create, manage and open project or client specific files and one or more spreadsheet like screens.

Drag the screen with your finger to scroll through columns or rows. Use the Zoom In or Zoom Out commands to see details or an overview. Tap twice on a cell to change the value by typing, sliding a control or selecting from a menu.

ExcelRT is not an authoring environment. It can only be used to enter data, perform calculations or display, share or print the results.


To download a Product, tap the Menu button at the top right corner of the home screen. Select the Download menu and enter the URL provided by the Product vendor. Click the Download button to install the Product into ExcelRT.

The Samples button adds a list of URLs for sample Products that you can download and use in ExcelRT.

To run a Product, select it and tap Run. On first use, you may be required to enter a Serial Number for activation.

From the Products screen, you can also release a license for use on another device or remove the Product.

When you run a Product, the Open Data File screen is presented.

This screen has buttons to create and manage files displayed within the application. Use it to create a file for each client, project or job the Product is used for.

Tap the button in the top left corner to leave this Product.


An Excel workbook can be converted into a protected, licensed application that runs on almost any computer or device. Author your workbook using Microsoft Excel on Mac or Windows. Use ConvertExcelRT on Windows to convert it to an ExcelRT file.

An ExcelRT file can be stored as an XML or ERT file. As a developer, you can test it in ExcelRT running on different desktop or mobile platforms before you make a protected Product for distribution to customers.

Upload an XML or ERT file to your website. To download an XML or ERT file into ExcelRT on your iPhone or iPad, tap the Menu button at the top right corner of your home screen. Select the Download menu and enter the URL of your file. Click the Download button.

Choose the File command from the Menu to see a list of downloaded XML or ERT files stored within ExcelRT. From this screen you can open, rename or delete files.
