    Default You can use a webserver to view files
    If you've got installer.app on your iphone you can view excel files by installing lighttpd.

    Once installed, just edit the /usr/local/etc/lighttpd.conf file on the iphone

    add this to the beginning of the file:
    dir-listing.activate = "enable"

    remove the # from the line with this in it:
    server.bind = "127.0.0.1"

    now all you need to do is sftp files over to the Sites folder in the iphone and you can view them by navigating to http://127.0.0.1 on the iphone to list the files and click on the one you want to view.

    this works for all the files safari can show, including excel and pdf's.
