Manage Multiple Workbook in MS Excel

How to manage multiple Workbook and Worksheet

Now we will see that how we can manage multiple workbook and worksheet all together at once in MS Excel.

Sometimes we face this common problem of copying data from one workbook to another workbook. Now to overcome that we have one option as 'Switch Windows' in our VIEW tab.

In that option we can see that list of all our workbooks is present. And the workbook which is currently opened has a tick marked in front of its name.

Now by clicking on that option we can switch to any workbook. We can also add this option to our quick access toolbar which will be very useful for us.

To move from one worksheet to another we can also press 'Ctrl+Tab' key from our keyboard.

If you want to view all the data of each workbook together on our screen at once, that 'Arrange All' option is present in our VIEW tab. We can use that option for our required task.

We can also set area for each of the workbook by dragging them as per our need.


a) In Excel, open your workbook. b) For each worksheet you want to view in that workbook, click the New Window button. c) Select the tab of the worksheet you wish to view in each new window. e) Select your arrangement view in the next dialogue.

In the tab bar, select all of a workbook's worksheet names. Holding down the Ctrl or Shift keys allows you to choose numerous items. Select Move or Copy from the context menu by right-clicking the worksheet name.

Click the worksheet tabs you want to group while holding down the Ctrl key. Tip: To group worksheets in a range, click the first worksheet tab in the range, then press and hold the Shift key while clicking the last worksheet tab in the range.

Compare two worksheets from the same workbook:

  • Click New Window in the Window group on the View tab.
  • Click View Side by Side in the Window group on the View tab.
  • Click the sheet you want to compare in each workbook window.
  • Click Synchronous Scrolling to scroll through both spreadsheets at the same time.

Under the Ablebits Data tab, click the Workbook Manager icon. Choose the desired action by right-clicking any worksheet or workbook. Alternatively, click the matching icon on the toolbar of the add-in.
