Hi all
I am trying to create a Excel document with Office Starter. However, some of the gridlines disappeared as I was working on it. Note: only some of them. I want to be able to print the gridlines, but they are still missing in print preview. Nothing I have tried has brought it back. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.

 Have you considered the free LibreOffice?  It contains a pretty much compatible version of Office and it's free.  Of course you could spend $150 or so and buy something like the Home and Student version of Office too.  


Everyone with a computer should back his system up to an external hard drive regularly.  :thumbsup:

If you turn grid lines off and then back on does the problem get resolved?

 

Edit: Have you rebooted the computer and then tried opening Excel with gridlines?

Hi John

Thanks for your reply.  I tried what you suggested but it didn't help.  However, Mike at the Computer.net forum directed me to a site that helped.  It said to highlight the whole document, then go to the Font section, click on Borders, and click on All borders.  The gridlines magically appeared.
