WEBADI , excel 2010 and windows 7 - cant switch between 2 excel spreadsheet

user2675623 Newbie
Currently Being Moderated
we are currently upgrading user pcs to windows 7 with ms office 2010.

the users are now complaining that when they open up an excel template in WEBADI and msoffice 2010,
if they then open a 2nd spreadsheet (or open it before WEBADI one), they are unable to alt-tab between the spreadsheets ie so they can copy/paste data between them.

I thought it was because we hadnt installed the compatibility patch into our oracle apps, which we have now done in a tes environment but it hasnt made any difference

I then thought it might be 'Aero peek', which comes with windows 7, you can hover over the excel group on the task bar and see the 2 spreadsheets open, but cannot select anything other than the WEBADI one.

Also if you try alt-tab you cannot see the non-webadi spreadsheet.

To me it looks like some sort of properties issue ie keep WEBADI spreadsheet at the front, but having searched the internet for a similar issue I havent found anything.

Can anyone help?
