Numbers (iWork) is USELESS

Maybe not completely useless.

Was charting a large series of data on a 24" iMac with 4GB RAM. Trying to change any aspect of the chart spiked one of the processors at 100%, and caused the whole application to become non-responsive for at least 30 seconds.

I saved my work, quit Numbers, then relaunched. Same problem. Any changes to the chart led to the same issue.

Switching over to Excel for now.

Just a thought as I don't know how large your data is or how this program handles large data, but did you give "Tables" a try with the same spreadsheet?
At least, this is a Universal app as opposed to Excel.
There is a free trial download on their site.
