Default Excel (2007) Find Diagloue Box Default Position

I have two monitors and have excel on my left hand monitor. Every time I open the FIND dialogue box, it always opens on the right hand monitor and I have to drag it over to the left...

Even if I drag it to the left monitor where I want it, save my spreadsheet, close Excel and then re-open it and then open the FIND dialague box, it opens on the right monitor again...

Is there anyway to specify where the FIND dialogue box will open?

Many times, those dialogs will open in the cetner of the primary monitor.
The right monitor I suspect has been defined as the primary.

Try to define the left monitor as primary.
