Excel showing diffrent on computer

Hello,
I have a really weird issue.

We have a Microsoft Excel file that is shared on the server. When opening it, it shows 4 tabs at the bottom. (It is suppose to be like this)

but, when opening it from my coworkers computer it's only showing 2 tabs. It's the same file, same everything.

I uninstalled Microsoft Office and the issue did not go away.

The pictures show how they are popping up.
Right = My computer
Wrong = Coworker computer

Both computers are running Microsoft Office 2007.

Any help would be great!
Thanks so much - Matt

It seems your co worker may not have rights ( Locked) on hidden sheets. Its only a guess, because there is nothing in details.

Try to use Unhide tab. or check the sheet view rights for your coworker.

Thanks,

Well what is happening is the following:
In the tab area down at the right or the last tab you see a small tick inside the red circle like in the attached picture. Just drag it to the right to reveal the hidden sheets that were covered by the horizontal scroll bar. Save the workbook and re-open it, it should be fine.

This setting is regardless of the workbook and remembered by Excel so in your co-worker it must have been set too much to the left and reason why the sheets appear to be hidden.

If you look in his screenshot "Wrong" you can see the tick is shifted all the way to the right.

No, He is opening it the same way as me...
It looks like a web because I am using LogMeIn to view his pc because he is located in another building.

I right clicked on one of the tabs and hit "unhide"

It showed the 3 missing tabs.. clicked them and they are now showing..
