Why is the default file handling behavior different for Office apps?
Specifically the thing that drives me nuts: in Word, when you have 4
docs open and hit the 'close' button (upper right) the *document*
closes, while for Excel the entire *app* closes. I keep finding myself
closing all 3-4 spreadsheets I have open instead of just the one I am
finished with - then i have to remember what I was working on and
re-open it.

Is there a way to change this behavior?
