 The Close (x) button is greyed out in Excel (97 and 2000 version_

Has anyone experienced this problem, once in Excel the
Close button (top right dialog box) is greyed out and I
always have to click on File/Close or Exit to get out of
this software?  Help - Please - Thanks

Are using using Groupwise?

If that's the problem. See this MSKB article

  http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;260199

It gives a workaround (use the file menu) and instructions as to how to remove
the Groupwise add-in that is responsible for this behavior.
