    I was about (leave) the office - gerund/infinitive

    'I was about to leave the office' or 'I was about leaving the office.' Which one is correct?

    Only the first is correct.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
