Hello navin_peddi,

you don't give us much to go by. It looks as if your computer does not have enough memory or processing power to display all components of your spreadsheet. you could

- try to open the workbook on a more powerful machine.
- upgrade your memory
- reduce the complexity of the workbook

There are many ways to improve performance in 2007. See here: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa730921%28office.12%29.aspx

cheers, teylyn
