Open multiple instances of excel

For quite sometime I’d have to battle with Excel, in that I couldn’t view two Excel documents simultaneously. Here is a quick fix:


=> Simply open a text editor

=> Paste the following code:

start “Excel” “C:Program Files (x86)Microsoft OfficeOffice12EXCEL.EXE” /e %1

=> Save the file with a .bat extension (remember to change the file type to all files

=> The code above is for 64bit windows and Office 2007 – if you have 32 bit windows just remove the (x86) part
