    Office 2010 Excel: two sheets


    I have Office 2010 and I know there is some trick to do this, but I cannot find it anywhere. I have two monitors and at work I have the same setup. Person who use to work there I heard said it was a hack that they added to my system so I don't know what that is.

    Here is what I currently do at home though. Two Excel files, let's say one is called Bulbs and the other Roof. To view both files I would open Bulb first, then go to run and type excel. A blank excel launches, then I go to File > Open and then I locate the Roof file and then I have both files open in two different windows where I can move one to one monitor and the other to another. This way I can see both at the same time

    At work though because of the hack all I do is launch excel files and they all open in their own windows. Can someone explain how I can do this for my home system? Can this also be done with different versions of Office Excel? I believe the one at work is Office 2013

    Hi there
    Just have the 2 different worksheets in one workbook - then just move the sheet you are interested in to the other monitor.

    Well, The file data is not that simple; I have to have separate Windows; just like what my work does. Question still remains, how is this done. If the guy at work who knew how to use some sort of hack was there I would ask, but he is no longer with the company. Thank you for the reply, but I need to have them separate.

    You have to take Excel out of Fullscreen mode to be able to detach a sheet to move to your other monitor. No hack required.

    Hi there
    even in Single Monitor mode you can view multiple worksheets in different Windows or Freeze part of a spreadsheet while scrolling etc -- no hacks needed at all -- just use the Window option in the View part of the menu.
