Listen in, listen Ian!
Words I've had to add to my phone's predictive text this afternoon:
glucose, factorial. They're not that obscure are they?

Someone's spelled "anomaly" as "anomalie" in a spreadsheet I'm using, but I
quite like that as it makes it seem a bit French.

Is there a way to view two Excel spreadsheets in completely different
windows, rather than flicking between them/tiling in the same window? I'm
sure there used to be but I'm bvggered if I can find it now.

Open another copy of Excel.

But it just opens the new spreadsheet in the same window so I can't see them both at once.

Oh. I didn't understand the question properly! Never mind.

Can't you just cut and paste one onto a new spreadsheet? Or have I misunderstood what you were asking?

Possibly. I just needed to change some information in some rows of a spreadsheet, based on some numbers in another spreadsheet but it was too random to c+p.

my phone knows factorial but not glucose which is rubbish seeing as it thinks gluanse is a word.

This reply is far too late to be of any use, but I can view 2 Excel spreadsheets at the same time by Window->Arrange->Horizontal (or Vertical).

That still arranges them in one window though doesn't it? I want them in two completely different windows.

When I do the Window->Arrange->Horizontal thing I get two spreadsheets onscreen at the same time like this. They show up as seperate tabs along my taskbar which makes Alt-Tab flicking easy. I can get the same effect by running 2 sessions of Excel and opening one book in each session. This way I have to adjust the Excel windows' size to see both at once.

I suspect today I am mostly being hard of understanding.

I suspect the question I need to ask is whether there's a setting that automatically loads a document that I double click on into a new session of Excel rather than an already open session. Which is what I want.
