There are two users in the same office.
 
When they access the same document library and open the same excel file...

One sees the excel file displayed in the client application (excel)

The other sees the excel file displayed in the browser

I have confirmed that "Open in the client application" Under "Advanced Settings" is selected.

What would cause this, more importantly, how do I resolve it?

You have to change the setting in 3 different places.

1. Go to Central Administration. Click on Site Actions > Site Settings. Under Site Collection administration, click on Site Collection Features and activate “Open Documents in Client Applications by Default”.
2. Go to the Site Collection in question, Click on Site Actions > Site Settings. Under Site Collection administration, click on Site Collection Features and activate “Open Documents in Client Applications by Default”.
3. Go to the Document Library in question, Click on Library Settings, Advanced Settings and select either “Use the server default” or “Open in client application”. (which you've done already).
