When opening multiple files in Office 2000 Microsoft Word the document close button vanishes.  I understand that in office 2000 multiple document opening will initiate a new instance of the program for each document, but in powerpoint, excel etc. this button does not vanish!  Please try it and advise, it is driving me nuts.

Apparently, it's another one of those "features" not a bug.  Since it opens another instance of Word for each document, you "don't need" a document close button -- you just need a program close button.  You close the instance of Word for that document, and the other instances with other documents stay open.  You should have a separate instance showing on your task bar for each document, so you could right click on a document and close it there, as well.

Hi Nicky,

As micro66 has said, oneof the features of Word 2000. This article explains a little bit why you can't change this setting:

Thanks, but I still miss that button! Powerpoint and Excel have it and I want it back! but there you go.

Thanks again
