open two excel 2010 sheets at the same time in different screens

How to open two different excel 2010 spreadsheets at the same time at the same computer individually?

I have two monitors, the main one and the extended one. and i want to be able to see the both sheets at the same time one the main monitor and the other in the extended one, for comparison work.

I have tried many things, but excel 2010 keeps one sheet open and the other is always minimized under it!!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks

Thank you but all this i know. my question is to open two different sheets in two different monitors at the same time, with every sheet full size. like for example in word 2010, you can open two document one on your main screen, and drag the other to your extended screen.

seems non of you could answer me,, i found the answer by myself here:
