Hi

Open the first file in Excel and drag the window to the monitor where you want to view that file.

Press the Shift Key and click the Excel Taskbar icon to open a second instance of Excel. Position that new window onto the other monitor. Use File/Open to open the second file in that window.

Let us know if this works for you.
