Google loves to name its operating system after delicious treats mostly  :(

Anyways, hello To all Excel Experts – I wanted to know a question in general – which operating system will ideally support excel and my beloved macros – JellyBean or Ice Sandwich  - keep in mind – I love both the food – lots of sugar but boy it’s something I gotta love..

    If by Excel, do you mean MS Excel? MS doesn't make that app for the Android.

    Best way to go about this, is to use open source spreadsheet apps. I have used Polaris Office and Thinkfree Office and they both work well.

    About the best you can do with Android is open or view Excel files.

    Well that's the best I've seen - I stopped looking after trying several apps that just didn't work for me.

    Thank you everyone for your feedbacks  - Also this brings us to the final question::

    On given sunny afternoon - If you have the option of consuming either  Ice Cream sandwich or  Jelly Bean - not both - which one would you prefer ? Is your loyalty more towards jelly bean as it is dry and ready to eat quick or the chilly feeling of the ice cream sandwich? Which one would you prefer from Candy perspective? and why?

    Thank you
