    Excel windows

    How do I get Excel workbooks (in 2003) to have their own window? Currently they all have pseudo windows and if I hit the big red x in excel it nukes the lot... I want a full on Excel window for all of them, basically.

    Cheers!

    PHP Code:
    $s = new signature();
    $s->sarcasm()->intellect()->font('Courier New')->display();

    right click on the tab at the bottom and select "move or copy" then change the "to book" option to new book and hit ok

    Sorry, I mean workbook, not worksheet.

    Yep, what Steve B said ought to work.

    Alternatively you should be able to open multiple instances of Excel, then just load each workbook in a different instance. That should do the trick too.
