I have a spreadsheet for simple accounting where the entries are sorted by date, with the new numbers you can now sort by date and the formulas are all moved around correctly. However a 2nd table on the same sheet which references those cells in table 1 gets totally messed up and the formula cells on table 2 are no longer looking at the correct cells on table 1. Has anyone else come across this yet

    You have surfaced the first substantive operational change - that is change in the mechanics behind the curtain - that I have heard about.


    This would probably be to address the numerous complaints that Numbers used to sort differently than Excel. Numbers now continues to point at the same cell location, not the same data, after a sort as it did before the sort, in cross table references.


    Lots of folks will be happy that their Excel imports will work better.


    I've said this all without seeing your particular problem. If you post a screen shot and a description of what is happening and what you would rather see happen, I'll help you to straighten it out.
