Do you want the two documents on the screen at the same time or in the same window at the same time? By default, when you open a document using FIle->Open, it opens the document in a new window. I don't think OpenOffice supports viewing more than one document in the same window the way that Microsoft Excel does.

Hi rodolfo6666,

Just a suggestion, if you're using Windows you can open both documents then right-click on the taskbar and select "Tile Windows Horizontally/Vertically" to see them both at the same time.

You can also have 2 windows viewing the same file (Window > New Window), but you cannot split an existing window. See these previous threads:

HTH Smile,
