Default Open two instances of Excel, Excel 2007

I've got a dual monitor setup, and want to configure Excel to allow me to
open a spreadsheet in a new instance, so I can look at two spreadsheets,
simultaneously.

In 2003, there was an option under the Tools menu that allowed me to ignore
other applications (or something like that). I've looked at the Excel
Options in 2007, but have not found this option. Anybody know where to find
that option in 2007?

use DDE

Jim,

Tried that, but now, when I double click on an excel file in a fold, on my
desktop, or in an email message, it opens Excel but tells me it cannot find
the file, so I have to click on the Office icon, Open, and select the file.

It gives me the functionality I needed (multiple instances of Excel), but
with a little more work.

Any idea why it won't just open the Excel file in another instance of Excel?
