Chapter 2. Office Basics > Working with More Than One Document at a Time

Working with More Than One Document at a Time

Some of the Office applications let you open more than one document at a time, and that can really be handy when you need to compare documents or just have a lot going on! For example, you might open a letter in Word and also open a report so you can work on both. Word, Excel, and PowerPoint all let you open multiple documents. To do so, you just click File, Open and open a document. These applications open a new instance of the program (that is, another application window) to display the document.

When you open another database in Access, however, the current one closes. If you want to have two databases open at one time, you need to open the first one and then open another copy of Access from the Start menu and open the second database in that copy.
