Default Little red X again

Sorry to ask again, but I am not absolutely sure I posted this original
request properly.

When I save some Word documents I see a little red X surrounded by a circle
to the left of the animated green 'saving' indicator bar at the bottom of
the screen. What the heck does that mean? The red X does not seem to be
any more than a warning or something that provides information. I can't
find any mention of this red X in any of my help books. How can I get rid
of the red X--it makes me nervous.

Thanks for any help.

It's a cancel button for the save operation.

I'm guessing Word creates a new file during the saving process and in a last
step replaces the old file with the new one. If you are able to press the
button before that last step occurs, you can cancel the save operation.
