    You should try to open the spreadsheet you made on the iPAD using the applications Numbers located in the folder "/Applications"


    You actually have two versions installed.  You are most likely trying to open with the previous vesion which is located in the folder "/Applications/iWork '09"



    Numbers '09                         Numbers 2013

    Version 2.3                              Version 3x

    check and see what version you are using.  you should use the one that has an icon like the one on the right

    The current version of Numbers for iOS is compatible only with Numbers 3.x for Mac.

    Numbers 3.x for Mac requires OS X Mavericks. If you are running your Mac on an earlier version of OS X, and have Numbers 2.3, there is no newer version that will run on your machine.
