    Question Gridlines turned on but do not show

    Occasionally I receive an excel sheet that does not show any gridlines. I have tried going into view and making sure that show gridlines is selected. Iíve also tried selecting hide gridlines and then reselecting show gridlines to no avail. Finally I went to Excel options and made sure show gridlines was selected under advanced settings.
    The only thing Iíve been able to do is add borders (which I donít like the look of) or set up a new tab and bring the data over using formulas, then cut and paste values only. If I just copy the non-gridline data, I get a copy without gridlines. Iím sure there must be some easy trick to this Ė I just donít know how the spreadsheet author got the gridlines to disappear.

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    Color is set to Black and I also checked that Patterns is set to automatic. I've tried to upload a sample.

    The cells are filled white. Set them to no fill to see the gridlines.

    Question Re: Excel 2007 : Gridlines turned on but do not show despite setting their color.

    A blank sheet would not show gridlines even after setting gridlie color. One has to put some data atleast in on one of the cells. Then, gridlines will appear instantaneously
