Open Excel in separate windows

How can I configure Excel to always open each spreadsheet in a new window.  I DON'T WANT to open a new instance of Excel then point to a file on my PC.  I want to tell Excel to work like Word does, and simply launch each spreadsheet in a new window.  When I get a spreadsheet as an attachment, I want to click on it and open a new window.

To resolve this, go to 'excel options' > click on the 'advanced' tab > scroll down to general > check the ignore other applications that use 'Dyanamic Data Exchange (DDE)'
