Hello,

I don't think you can open more than one Find box with native Excel. You'd have to create something with VBA instead.

Do you know that Excel keeps a short list of previous search values which you can access from the Find dialog by clicking on the dropdown arrow control on the "Find what" field?

Only one Find dialog can be open at once.
