Is it possible to open multiple instances of Excel 2010 in Windows 7?

I want to be able to open multiple instances of Excel 2010 in Windows 7 on a PC. This is the default for opening Word docs but for some reason Excel limits me to multiple windows inside one instance. Is there a way to do this? Challenge: I do not have the ability to edit the registry on this (work) computer.

Detect bold text in MS Excel

I have a very large MS Excel spreadsheet in Mac Office 2008 (yuk). I want to find every cell that contains bold text and append an asterisk to it -- i.e. "bold cell text" becomes "bold cell text*". I can probably find a Windows machine if necessary. How can this be done automatically?
