    Don't know if this should be an XP issue or Applications, but . . .
    I've recently changed employers, and therefore have new Office 2003 apps (shared through a Citrix MetaFrame environment - yuk!), and have an issue in Excel. When I have multiple workbooks open, I have only one Excel button on my taskbar, and the only way to move from one sheet to another is via the "window" dropdown on the toolbar, or Arranging windows through the toolbar. In MS Word, on the other hand, I get what I'm used to - multiple taskbar buttons, one for each file open.

    I've tried ungrouping my similar taskbar buttons, but no help. My single Excel taskbar button doesn't list multiple sheets anyway, just the topmost sheet.

    My guess is this is a function of working through Citrix MetaFrame, but I would really like to get back to the old way of quickly switching between worksheets by clicking a taskbar button.

    Any ideas???

    In Excel: Tools - Options - View tab; check the "Windows in Task bar" box.

    I tried the Tools - OPtions - View option, but to no avail. My suspicions are that its the Citrix metaframe thats getting me.
    Thanks for the help, though! I've placed a "windows - arrange" button on my toolbar :-(
