    hi, I have documents I want to view on the ipad. they show in Paged Documents window on itunes. they don't show on the ipad. If I go to add them from itunes on the ipad, they appear in the list greyed out. They're word documents. I think I did once have them on the ipad somethings happened during recent updates

    A quick solution is to simply email them to yourself from your PC to your iPad. Not a pretty solution, but it's quick and painless...

    In order to use iTunes to copy documents to Pages you use the File Sharing feature. You have to have the iPad connected to the computer, but it is not necessary to do a sync. Files are added immediately.

    The files are copied to the iPad but do not show up immediately in Pages. You still have to import them. You do this by using the + button to create a new document and choosing iTunes as the source. You'll see a list of documents that you can import. It is not necessary for the iPad to be plugged into the computer for this step.
