I'm using Excel 2002, on an XP box, with 2GB of RAM.

I have a spreadsheet I've used repeatedly, which has always been saved with 2 windows.

All of a sudden window:1 disappeared, and now I only have window:2. When I try to open another window in the workbook, it adds window:3, window:4, etc., but will never add window:1 again. I've shutdown Excel, and also rebooted but nothing remedies the issue.

Any idea of what's come undone, or how I can get window:1 back ? Thanks for any guidance.

Why does it matter what id each window is given? – Paul Dec 7 '11 at 5:02

Sounds to me like your Window:1 has been hidden. Check under the Window menu, if Unhide... is available.
