Due to the same limitations, WinTabs cannot function correctly if more than one copy of Excel 97 is running. In such a case, WinTabs will temporarily disable Excel 97 plugin. If, however, in each Excel window only one workbook is opened, WinTabs will continue to manage Excel windows with Excel 2000 plugin.

Limited to 9 documents in Word 2, 6, 7, and Excel 4, 5, 7

Due to the limitations in old Word/Excel support, WinTabs can display only first nine documents.

Documents with equal names in Word/Excel 97 (and older)

Due to the limitation of Word/Excel automation model, WinTabs doesn't function correctly when two (or more) documents have same name. This limitation does not apply to Word/Excel 2000.

Mixing Office 97 and 2000

WinTabs can handle Excel 97 and 2000 running at the same time if only one workbook is opened in Excel 97 window. If that is not the case, both Excel plugins will be temporarily disabled.
