Excel – Opening Excel on two different monitors

Can I open separate spreadsheets on two different monitors? I have two separate spreadsheets that I'd like to look at on two different monitors. How can I accomplish this?

Typically, Microsoft Excel likes to open workbooks in a single Excel.exe process. The workbooks will appear as other tabs inside of one Excel process. To combat this, you need to open two instances of Excel, and open one document in each process. Then you can drag them along to whatever display you please.
