Open Excel twice each with one workbook and you can very easily toggle between open workbooks with Alt Tab. I do this all the time and it works very well.

You can open Excel twice in Windows 7 - I have done this many times in Windows 7.

Restart your Windows 7 computer.

Open Excel and a workbook. Leave it open.

Now start Excel again. What happens?

I just fired up my Windows 7 machine in the basement which has Office 2010 and I have 2 Excel instances running, each with their own workbook and I can Alt Tab (toggle) between them.

Please check again. Thanks.

Alt+Tab allows you to toggle between all the open applications which are visible on the taskbar.
Where as Ctrl+Tab allows you to toggle between excel files only.
If opened excel files are grouped on the taskbar, you may right click the taskbar --> Properties --> Choose Never combine for taskbar button option.
And if this doesn't ungroup the similar applications, you may download a third party application known as 7tt_setup_beta (free) to ungroup the same application on the taskbar.

[Ctrl]+[F6] will also toggle between all open Excel workbooks.

I do not recommend opening multiple instances/sessions of Excel 2010.  It is not stable and will not provide full functionality (ex., cutting and pasting).  Excel 2013 and newer can emulate multiple windows/instances, however.
