Numbers Functions Help - Is this possible?

Hi, I'm looking at getting some ipads for my workplace but need to know if Numbers is capable of doing these things.

1. Can a cell on sheet 1 transfer its value to a specific cell on sheet2 depending on the date (ex. january 2) and leave it there forever (record keeping) but transfer to a different cell on sheet 2 if the date is something else (ex. march 25)

2. Is it possible to have selected cells values automatically change to 0 at the beginning of each day?

Those are the two important ones. I figure I might as well post my other questions concerning the ipad here since I don't know where else to post (apple forum not working for me)

1. Can multiple ipads function on a network updating the same general files (don't know if this is possible or even makes sense)

2. Are there any differences between mac computer's numbers and ipad numbers.

Thanks for all your help. I tried at the apple store and they were unable to answer my questions.

That's an interesting question(s)

worthy of more investigation.

I'll check my Numbers app and see what I can figure out on this one.

Thank you!

Thank you so much, I can't seem to find these answers anywhere. If it turns out that it is not possible is there any other software or applications you would recommend that might be able to do it. That would be a big help. Thanks again

I was not able to figure out a way to do #1 and #2 in Numbers.

That does not mean that it cannot be done, just that I don't know how to do it.

The second set of questions:

1. Yes, but not at the same time

2. No, apart from it being written to take advantage of the touch screen, Numbers is the same

Alright, thanks for looking into that for me. I guess ill try to find another way.
