For some reason on a clients computer, Microsoft Excel will not save a file, clicking on save or save as does nothing, does not pull up a dialog box or anything like that it just sits there.  I have done a repair of Office but the issue still persists, any ideas

From what is says I note: Could possibly be either a virus infection, or issue with One Note or Counterfit Office copy.
