When ever i click on menu the submenu gets opened at left hand side.
The css is as follows:

nav {width:980px; float:left; background:url(../images/nav_bg.jpg) center repeat-x; height:35px; margin:0 9px; position:relative;}
nav ul {margin:0; padding:0;}
nav li {float:left; border-right:1px solid #000;}
nav li a {color:#FFF; font:bold 14px/35px "Trebuchet MS"; display:block; text-shadow:0 -1px 0 #000; padding:0 16px;}
nav li a.active, nav li a:hover {border-bottom:3px solid #C30; height:32px;}
nav li:last-child {border-right:0;}
/* 1st Level DropDown Menu */
li.subnav ul {width:980px; background:url(../images/dd_nav.png) top repeat; position:absolute; z-index:1002; display:none; border-top:1px dotted #bcbcbc; left:0;}
li.subnav li {border-left:1px dotted #bcbcbc; border-bottom:1px dotted #bcbcbc; float:left; position:relative;}
li.subnav li a, li.subnavs li a {color:#FFF; font:11px/26px Verdana; padding:0 10px;}
li.subnav li a:hover, li.subnavs li a:hover {background:url(../images/dd_nav.png) top repeat; height:26px; border-bottom:0;}
li.subnav:hover > ul, li.subnavs:hover > ul {display:block;}

It going to be all guesses and near impossible to get the answer this question with just the
CSS provided.....

Here is my guess

li.subnav li {border-left:1px dotted #bcbcbc; border-bottom:1px dotted #bcbcbc; float:left; position:relative;}

Open in new window


CHANGE TO
li.subnav li {border-left:1px dotted #bcbcbc; border-bottom:1px dotted #bcbcbc; clear:both; position:relative;}

Open in new window


ANd possibly line 1

nav {width:980px; float:left; 

Open in new window


Change to

nav {width:980px; clear:both;

Open in new window



Or remove the float:left.

Please post the rest of the HTML....

What browser are you in?  I tried it locally on the files you posted and it worked fine. Is the sub nav supposed to be vertical?
