regarding wrong file name:
are you testing it in local or from web(ffiles) ?
ok wherever u test remember when you press load then the respective xml file is loaded and shown in text area.
if file path is wrong then mo result is shown in text area
and if u co through code i have made a unused condition in my code to know whether the file is loades sucessfully or not !!

regarding scrollbar :
scrollbar is used to see long xml files which extend the text area after load.
