DTPicker in Excel 10 doesn't activate on startup

I am using a DTPicker on a Excel Worksheet, one ofr a begin date and one for an end date.  The issues I am having are when I open the Workbook, the two controls are not functional and appear with very large font.  I can go into Design mode, resize the controls and they work fine.
When I say "not functional" I mean to say they do not drop down and you cannot enter a date.  You can however, programatically change the date (Value property) in code as I set the current year Begin date and end date from a button.

I might just remove them and use cells but I am curious why this happens.

If you resize and save it in 2010 does it fix it for the next time? Could just be a hiccup in the way the data is stored between 2007/2010

By Excel 10, do you mean Excel 2010 version 14) , or Excel 2002 (version 10)?

Size problems similar to yours have been previously reported with DTPicker and Excel 2000. The cure reported in this thread was to change the Zoom setting or to change the scroll row when the workbook opens. http://www.mrexcel.com/forum/showthread.php?t=70813

No, everytime I open the workbook the behavior is the same.  But you made me think of something different.  I am working on Office 2010 but this worksheet is 2007 format.  Let me save it as a xlsm and see what that does.  Nope same same.

Well, if you want to post the sheet, we'll play with it and see if we can figure it out. If you delete it and make a new one in 2010 does it still do it?
