I just upgraded to Mountain Lion (10.8.3) from Lion and I am having some issues.  This post relates to my problem with Numbers '09 version 2.3 (554) - latest.  I already have a number of spreadsheets that I used all the time on Lion.  After the upgrade, Numbers loads and the files open.  HOWEVER the contents of each sheet cannot be seen.  The pane on the left showing the sheets and their tables and charts is fine but the main pane that would normally contain the selected spreadsheet is a completely blank white pane.  The toolbar is fine and the Numbers menus respond.  If I select "cells" in the white area by randomly clicking around then I see different format buttons highlight in the toolbar and if there is a data value in a cell then it shows up in the top line below the toolbar and above the empty sheet pane but not in the sheet itself.  Does anyone have any ideas?

Mac Pro (Early 2009), OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.3), Numbers '09 version 2.3 (554)

    There may be a pending update for your system or for Numbers

    Open the App Store (using the menu item " > App Store") and select the "Updates" icon at the top (to the right)

    try in a different (or new) user.  If problem is only in your user space then delete Numbers preference files
