How to Create a Document in Excel for iPhone and iPad

In this tutorial you will learn how to create a new document in Excel for iOS, using either a template or an entirely blank sheet.

Step # 1 – Register a Microsoft Account

In order to access to the full capabilities of Excel for iOS, you will have to register a Microsoft Account. For this, you can use for example any of your existing e-mails hosted in a Microsoft-owned service (such as Outlook or Hotmail), or create a new account from scratch. For doing this, simply click the option “Account” in the main menu, and then tap “Sign in”. Then, just introduce the required data.
