Excel 2002 Spreadsheet opens two copies with :1 or :2 added to filename

By mis ·
When I open my spreadsheet two copies appear. One copy is named file:1 the other is file:2. Changes made to either copy are replicated to the other, closing one file closes the other. Renaming the file does not stop the behavior. This is a new behavior for a spreadsheet which has been in use for a long time. Creating a new spreadsheet appears to work normally. Also, ran repair in the problem spreadsheet and it did not resolve the issue.

Select the window that you want to close, and press Ctrl + w

Save the remaining file and the problem should be gone.

I'm Glad you had the answer

This happened to me today, and I was wondering how to even find the answer. And I came across this in the Searches.
Thank you for this answer, that helped alot.
But how did it happen in the first place? I would like to know, so that I can arrange my program to prepare for that.

Thanks again, you saved me probably hours and hours of work and searching.
