Files that contain the .numbers file extension are files that are created by the Apple iWork Numbers spreadsheet application. Apple iWork Numbers is a part of the iWork Productivity Suite. The iWork Productivity Suite is similar to the Microsoft Office Suite that is used on Windows-run computers.
The files that contain the .numbers file extension store spreadsheet documents that have been created by the iWork Numbers software. These files can contain settings, XML information, tables, graphs, pictures, formulas and other spreadsheet data. NUMBERS files are similar in nature to Excel files, but the NUMBERS files are created in iWorks Numbers and not with the Excel software.
