I'm using both Excel 2007 and 2010 in two computers.

The expression window is hidden in Excel 2007

It's Excel 2007. I remember there used to be a horizontal window that shows the expression of the selected cell. But, as shown in the figure, it's gone now. I can't find any option to show it again. Do you have any idea?

The expression window is shown in Excel 2010

As you can see the above Excel 2010 image, there is the expression window that I want to see also in Excel 2007.

The horizontal window you are looking for is the Formula Bar.

It can be displayed / hidden by choosing the View menu on the ribbon and selecting Formula Bar (see highlighted area below).

(I can't translate the language from your original screenshot, but I imagine you can find it.)
