I'm not sure if this is of much help, but I just did a test in Frame 6.  
I opened a book, opened two files from the book, and then inserted a 
cross ref from one open file to the other.  When the cross ref dialog 
opened, I clicked on the down arrow to expand the document list, and 
nothing happened.  I then remembered that there is a problem with Frame 
when you run the Classic Style windows and buttons on XP (as I do) - 
sometimes I had to click on the arrow 3 times to get the drop down list 
to appear.  However, as Fred said, when the cross ref dialog opens, the 
Document field is active and you can use the down arrow to select the 
correct file from the list.
