Opening NUMBERS files

Did your computer fail to open a NUMBERS file? We explain what NUMBERS files are and recommend software that we know can open or convert your NUMBERS files.

What is a NUMBERS file?

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.

Try a universal file viewer

In addition to the products listed above, I would suggest that you try a universal file viewer like Free File Viewer. It can open over 200 different types of files - and very likely yours too! Download Free File Viewer.
