    ms excel

    Normally when I have 2 different files open in excel there are 2 tabs in teh start bar down the bottom, which means its easy for me to change from one file to another if I have alot of things open. All of a sudden when I have 2 files open in excel only the single tab shows on the start bar and I have to click on window then choose the other file to get to it. Does anybody know why this has happened or how I can change it back 2 before????

    I am using excel 2000, win 98.

    thanks for any help you can provide.

    Try

    Tools --> Options --> View --> Windows in Taskbar

    It's quoted in the Bible, Revelations ... Behold the pale horse. The man who sat on him was death, and Hell followed with him.

    Tools --> Customize --> Commands

    Under "Categories," scroll down and select "Built-in Menus."

    In the right column, scroll down until you see "Data" (it's about half-way down).

    Click and drag "Data" from the right column to the toolbar (it should be between "Tools" and "Window.").

    It's quoted in the Bible, Revelations ... Behold the pale horse. The man who sat on him was death, and Hell followed with him.

    Another place you may want to look at for some other useful options is View -> Toolbars -> Customize. You should see 3 tabs: Toolbars, Commands, and Options. Explore around there a little and also see Tools -> Options (the "View" tab in particular). Should find everything you're looking for. Just be sure that if you make changes that you remember (keep a txt file if you have to) where and how you made the changes in case you need to go back.

    Finally, if you get really messed up choose Help -> Detect and Repair and restore your default settings.

    That takes you to the same screen as my solution.
