Question Scrolling table on iPad

I'm trying to convert a website to run on Safari iPad
Basically a lookup to select an item that will get returned to a main form whick works great on a pc using internet explorer, safari
when run on an iPad the table is displayed with no scrollbar and only the records that will fit in the defined area. So it is cutting off the rest of the records with no way to get to them.Tried looking at apple developer for safari but everything looks ok with that. Must be something about the ipad and touching the screen ????

<div style="overflow:auto; height:220px;width:660px;">
<table cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" id="table3" name="table3" width="500px">
<tr><td><a onclick="selectID('Company');" href="">Company></a></td></tr>


Any ideas?

Talking Table scrolling

Just figured it out. It actually does work on an iPad. On an iPad, the scroll bars are not shown but you can still scroll. It is called flick scrolling. You basically use two fingers to scroll then tap the record you want. I learned something new today. I wonder how many people using iPad know this trick.
