You can open an iWork 08 or iWork 09 spreadsheet. To take advantage of the new features, save the iWork 08 spreadsheets in the iWork '09 format. To allow iWork 08 users to access the spreadsheet, save it in iWork 08 format.
When you open a password-protected iWork 09 spreadsheet, you will need to enter the password in the Password field before you can view the contents of the spreadsheet.

Even if you see a message when you open a spreadsheet that warns you of a missing font or document, you can continue to use the spreadsheet. Numbers allows you to choose fonts to replace missing fonts. Or you can add the missing fonts by exiting Numbers and adding the fonts in the Fonts folder; For more information, see Mac Help. To restore missing movies or audio documents, add them back to the spreadsheet.
