Currently Being ModeratedJul 18, 2010 6:45 AM (in response to Derryl S)I have now found that Numbers documents will also not sync via iTunes
Am now more suspicious that it is either a bug in iOS 3.2.1 or a app conflict.

Currently Being ModeratedJul 18, 2010 7:06 PM (in response to Derryl S)Yes, same problem. It all worked fine when I got the iPad, but not now. I'm most interested in getting Numbers sheets on to the iPad via App Synch, but can't do it now. I have updated the iPad software, so I'm guessing it's a software change too.MacBook Pro, iPhone 4, iPad, TiBook, PB 250, Mac OS X (10.6.4)

After a LONG call to Apple support, restoring, updating, and a lot more, the problem could not be fixed.
Reinstalling the iOS, Numbers, or Pages did nothing to correct the problem.
Had to use a Time Machine backup Library file to bring back the iPad to the pre-call status.
Apple engineers are going to try to replicate the problem and see how it can be solved. As of now, there is NO SOLUTION. It MAY be a software problem, since there are at least 2 of us that it has happened to after updating the iPad iOS.
I personally DO NOT recommend anyone to do a complete restore to factory default unless they have a backup they can restore from and rely on or want to start from scratch. The iTunes back up was not sufficient to restore from since it was not behaving as was expected.
For right now, if you can't sync Numbers or Pages documents from iTunes to the iPad, you will just have to email them as an attachment to yourself and open in the app on the iPad.G4 1.8 Ghz dual Quicksilver, Mac OS X (10.5.8), 1.12 GB ram, 1.33 TB storage on 2 internal, 2 extenal firewire, iPad
Currently Being ModeratedJul 19, 2010 4:23 PM (in response to Pietro Esteves)The Apple tech and his supervisor took me through all the steps.
I know how it works--it used to work, but doesn't since the 3.2 iOS iPad update last week.

Currently Being ModeratedJul 24, 2010 3:18 PM (in response to Derryl S)An update to a previous post...
I fiddled with this a long time, and it looks like I missed a step in bringing in Numbers spreadsheets and Pages docs. I loaded the spreadsheets in iTunes Apps page File Sharing section at the bottom, synched, and... no new versions... UNTIL I clicked on the file folder on the right of the menu bar in the My Spreadsheets or My Documents window on the iPad, which opens the Spreadsheets/Documents Import list. I clicked the new ones, and in they came. So it does indeed work... without even hitting the Synch button in iTunes. A little byzantine, perhaps, and you'd think with Mobile Me and apps like Air Sharing (which I use for documents that don't need to be modified on the iPad and iPhone) they could figure out a way to make this a little easier.
But the synch does work... with one extra step!MacBook Pro, iPhone 4, iPad, TiBook, PB 250, Mac OS X (10.6.4)
Currently Being ModeratedJul 26, 2010 6:54 PM (in response to RooneyR)Problem solved. Thanks of that hint. Was that folder icon even there on the original OS?
There must have been a change with the OS update, but they didn't bother telling users or the Apple support team.
