Default Need to open 2 Instances of Excel 2007

I have a user that needs to open 2 spreadsheets in 2 different Excel windows.
She had the "Ignore other applications that use Dymanic Data Exchange (DDE)"
checked, allowing for multiple instances of Excell, but this function did not
allow her to double click a file to open in Excel. She would have to open
Excel, and open the file that way. Unchecking this box allows the files to
be opened by double clicking, but takes away the ability to open multiple
instances of Excel.

We, as a company, are migrating from Office 2003 to Office 2007 and the user
states she was able to do this in Excel 2003 with no problems. Did this
functionality change in Excel 2007, or are there more settings to check?
Thanks in advance for the help.
