I would like to read my Microsoft Excel files on my Android device. Is there anything built-in natively? Is there an application for viewing and editing Excel files on Android?

You can try Documents To Go. You can create, edit, and view MS Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and even PDF docs.

As a free alternative, you can upload your Excel docs to Google Docs and use the free GDocs app.


Here are two ideas:


My favorite app for this is OfficeSuite Pro but I got it when it was the free app of the day, so I can understand not wanting to pay $14.99... it is a great program though!


OfficeSuite is a great app for viewing and editing documents. There are two versions one as a Viewer (free), the other as a Pro (payable) version. There is also a trial version of the Pro version, so you could try it out if you decide to buy it.

What you get:

  • File browser
  • Text document module
  • Spreadsheet module
  • Presentation module
  • PDF Reader
  • Email reader

Supported formats:

  • Text format - DOC and DOCX, DOCM, RTF, TXT, LOG
  • Spreadsheet - XLS, XLSX, XLSM and CSV
  • Presentation - PPT, PPTX, PPS, PPSX, PPTM and PPSM
  • Other formats - PDF, EML, ZIP


  • OfficeSuite Pro is the only Android mobile office application that allows opening of password protected documents (taken from the Google Play site)

You could try WPS Office. It's free and I find it very useful.

Here is a list of features highlighted on official page:


  • Fully compatible with Microsoft Excel
  • Includes dozens of formula and function shortcuts
  • Supports pivot tables, freeze frames, sorting, table styles and more
  • Insert charts, including bar, pie, line and column
  • Edit cell categories (number, text, percentage, etc.)

Is AndrOpen Office any good?

Supposedly its OpenOffice made for Android.

If merely viewing is your requirement, something like XODO Docs would do the best for you

For both editing and reading, the official Microsoft Excel for Android would be the best choice
