Re: 30 years on...

Assuming it was a same-named file in a different directory, it used to be possible; up to Excel 2010 you could do it by launching another instance of Excel.exe and opening the second spreadsheet in there with file-open. You had to switch by alt-tab instead of control-tab, but it was no biggie.

Sadly on Office 2016 applications are limited to a single instance, so this workaround is no longer possible...
