I needed to have to two separate Excel documents open at the same time. When
I had one open and then tried to open the other one, the first one minimized.
It was impossible to have both open simultaneously. Then I learned that, if
I went to All Programs, Microsoft Office, Microsoft Office Excel 2007, and
opened Excel again, I could open the other document that way. This should
not be necessary. I don't know of any other program that works that way, in
particular Microsoft Word.
