    I have the full version of Documents to go and the problem is, when I scroll up or down in an XLS file i always get "checkerboards" even if I scroll slowly, and I have to wait 2 or 3 seconds before it dissapears and can see my information.

    I don't have Documents To Go, but Numbers (the Apple Excel equivalent) has the same problem....maybe it's to do with the complexity of processing the .xls files on the relatively modest iPad processor.

    The file I'm talking about are just titles of movies i have seen, about 500 titles, so its really a very simple file

    Tim is correct...it's processing time. I've noticed the same thing when using Documents To Go on my original iPad. However if I open a basic Excel file in Numbers the response is much faster. The downside is that Numbers cannot handle larger, more complex spread sheets. My WAG is DTG requires more processing activity to get the job done. I also have Office2 HD and it's a bit faster loading and updating spreadsheets than DTG as well.

    DTG is a good app but if all you need to do is work with a simple list (as long as there aren't complicated formulas, etc.) Numbers is probably a better bet.

    If all you need to do is view a spreadsheet (not work with it) GoodReader is a great option as well plus it's a very robust app for viewing and saving many other types of files.
