When you open a document, there are two one above the other in the upper right corner: the top one is for the application, the bottom one for the document. It is difficult to have people see the difference; further, in the new versions, if there is only one document open, the two buttons exist, if you have two or more, as they are open in own window, there is only one button which is closing the document-window; when you close down, the second re-appear when there is only one document open left.

OK, I'll reboot later today or tomorrow in Windows 7 and try to see what you're describing in Office. For the moment I must admit I can't figure out what these two buttons one above the other are, the only ones I remember are the three buttons disposed laterally side-by-side on the top right corner of each window, one for enlarging the window to screen size (green IIRC), one for minimizing it to the taskbar (yellow IIRC) and one (the one I was referring to, the big right button on the top right corner, red IIRC) for closing the window.
