How can i open 2 excel documents in seperate windows?

it keeps combining them to the one window (and wil let me view via 'window') but i want to open 2 so i can cascade, any ideas?

In Excel, Tools, Options, View, Checkbox for Windows in Taskbar

another option is using the "ctrl+F6" key which switches between documents...

Hi collinsc,

Open your first document normally and then open a blank excel workbook by clicking the Excel icon this should open in a new window, and then open the second document

Open both files. Then in either file View > Window > Arrange All > Cascade.

Hi takes a bit of getting used to but in time you will, when I first used Office 2007 I felt like a child using in my case Access for the first time now I am swinging along after only a few months and in my opinion it is far superior to any office I have used give it time and persevere and you will enjoy eventually good luck.
