iPad Pro 9.7 Smart Keyboard problem
Has anyone else had a problem with the iPad Pro 9.7, Excel and the Smart Keyboard? Every time you type into a cell, the software keyboard pops up momentarily before promptly disappearing - like Excel makes the cell editable, displays the iPad keyboard, then realises the Smart Keyboard is attached, and then removes the iPad keyboard.
- Type something into any cell
- Press return that then moves the focus onto the cell below
- Start typing something, and the software keyboard will pop up, before disappearing again
This bug can be reproduced on the iPads at the Apple Store.
Is there a solution/known bug?

Same problem Office 365 excel iPad Pro and Smart Keyboard don’t communicate. (But Word is fine, and I am using my Smart Keyboard to type out this comment with no problem).
I reported this to the Microsoft Community:

I've been hit with the same thing my new iPad Pro, Be grateful for your help.
I have experienced exactly the same problem. Is there going to be a fix for this soon?
This is the same with my iPad Air 2 with a bluetooth keyboard. It seems to be general Excel for iOS problem.
