Question about Honda Cars & Trucks
If at first you don't succeed, adjust your clutch linkage. Also known as trial and error vs do it right the first time. Murphy's law sucks.

is it a manual or automatic...if its a manual you probably forgot to hook up the shift linkage..if its a manual..you probably didnt put the shifter cable from the shifter on top right, so itll pull the gears when you if in and out on to or back and forth..look and see if the cable has too much slack..that hooks up to the transmission(automatic)....

Detach the clips (A, B) by pulling the center console box (C) up, and removing it from the center console (D). Remove the screws (A, B) and clips (C), and remove the center console (D). Install the console in the reverse order of removal, and note these items

Have you just replaced the clutch? Taken out the transaxle, and put it back in? Are you sure transmission was in good condition before this? If so, review your procedure carefully to be sure you got it all back right.
Watch the slave cylinder while someone depresses clutch. You should see the little plunger move slightly out and move the clutch lever back. The lever moves the release bearing inside bell housing into contact with the pressure plate. If slave cylinder doesn't move at all, try bleeding again. The plunger has to move when clutch is engaged.
I'm not sure what you mean by "will shift but won't go into gear". You mean it's actually going into a gear position and car won't move? Or it won't go into any gear, period. As if you had no clutch?

It's all in the linkage set-up right there where it feels so awful, you wanna pull it out and throw it away. Well, don't, because there is a fix for it that will make it nice and crisp and smooth,...well, just like new, in other words. That is, of course, as long as the grinding sound didn't come from inside the trransmission. That is another issue entirely, and sounds like clutch adjustment required.
What I'm referring to fix is the sloppy feel of the gear shifter as you try to run through the gears. All old honda and toyota owners must have experienced this. IIRC, the honda linkage is kind of complicated, but full of a few plastic bushings and pieces that wear over time, wear so bad in fact, they start feeling shoddy. It's easy enough to get a parts list of the gear shift linkage. I think there may even be suppliers out there with kits available to rebuild the whole linkage set-up. Or you could opt for a low mileage part from a salvage yard. Good luck on your '97. Honda had some good home runs. That '81 accord was a quirky little beast, though, but worth it for the awesome gas mileage.
