"Close File" - Necessary or not?

Ok..... I have some questions that I have yet to see posted anywhere so either I am totally in the dark or needlessly worrying. So...here goes!   Just finished a rather complex application that utilizes a "core" of fifteen primary databases (and a LOT of links, both 1:1 and 1: many) that necessitate a lot of "in and out" traffic between the databases, sets, etc. The scripts calls are many - I utilize a LOT of on-screen buttons. I noticed that on occasion, some of the script calls stopped working. For example, on a simple "Return Home" button that just places the user back on the Main Menu. Simple script really...just opens the Main Menu. Interesting thing though, there were ELEVEN OTHER COPIES of the HOME SCREEN also "OPEN" at the same time....all numbered of course. I hadn't thought of this before...

Should I make it a habit of using the "Close Flie" scenario to avoid this or is this a non issue??? Am I nuts or what???????
