Excel poser - workbook opens itself twice

I have a workbook which when it is opened opens 2 windows. Similar effect as the new window menu item. But I can't work out why. Does anyone have any clues?

Sounds like an additional window

It does sound like at some stage you have gone Window>New Window and have then saved the file down (with both windows open) - they will thus be restored every time you open the file. If you have their name appearing in the title bar like Book1.xls:1 and Book1.xls:2 then this is what has happened.

You will just need to close one of the windows and then save the workbook down again to prevent it from opening with two windows.

Hope this helps!
