Calibre: can't add to iPad

I'm brand new to calibre and the iPad. I thought I was following directions correctly to put a Word document on the iPad:
  1. Save as web page in Word
  2. Add books in Calibre
  3. Convert books in Calibre
  4. Send to device in Calibre

When I click "Device" in Calibre, it says my documents (now books) are in the main memory, but I can't find them anywhere: not in iBooks (where I expected them) or anywhere else I can think to look. iTunes doesn't see them either.

What am I doing wrong?

you need to sync your ipad to itunes - calibre places your book sinto itunes to be synced.

Calibre should not talk directly to iPad, It needs to be set up to talk to iTunes, which will do the iTalking
Go here ansd scroll down to the 'with USB cable' section http://manual.calibre-ebook.com/faq.html#id27

Thank you, theducks and richreads

OK, I was oversimplifying, to say the least. Funny, though, it worked a couple times earlier in v0.8.36, when, I confess, I was just noodling around and guessing at how things worked.

Anyway, I get it now. iTunes does the talking. Thank you for your help.
