    This has been bugging me for a while. I have 2 monitors (WIN98) with Excel 97 usually running maximized on right monitor. Some dialog boxes such as File Open don't like this. The initial dialog box opens on the Excel monitor (right). If I choose the dropdown box to change directories, the directory tree opens on the left monitor. No matter what I choose from the tree on the left monitor, the choice is not updated in the dialog box on the right. The only way I've found to make this work is to drag the original dialog box to the left monitor and proceed with selection. Is this weird or what?

    Just wanted to tickle this to take it to the top of the heap in hopes someone can offer suggestion.
