Date and Time Picker Control - Calendar in upper left corner

I have a user running Excel 2010 SP2 32bit and he wants to add a calendar control to his spreadsheet using Microsoft Date and Time Picker Control. When he adds it and gets out of Design Mode, the calendar goes to the upper left corner outside of the spreadsheet itself. It does not stay in its intended location.

I uninstalled/reinstalled Office and downloaded/installed latest version of MSCOMCT2.OCX. OS is Win7-64SP1.

Thanks in advance!

I think it is bug in Excel. On any reason Top value is not used until you change it manually. Open properties of Picker and change value in Top parameter:
TopNow Picker will be on proper place

Hi als315,

There was a value for Top; I did change it and the calendar moved and stayed in place and did not go to the upper left corner. However, when the document was saved and later reopened, the calendar reverted back to the upper left corner.

Yes, it is correct and seems correction of this bug is not planned by MS. I see only one solution (you can, of course, use form with calendar instead of ActiveX):
add sub to your worksheet:
Private Sub Worksheet_Activate()
ActiveSheet.DTPicker21.Top = 40       ' \Correct name of DTPicker and position
End Sub
