Microsoft Works question about gridlines...
I have done absolutely everything I can to get rid of the gridlines on my Works document. They don't show up on the computer screen but show up when i print and its really aggravating!! Any ideas on what i can do - i have already tried Page Setup and unchecking gridlines on View window....

I don't have Works here (I'm out of town) but if it works like it does in Excel, it might be because you have cell borders set.

You might see if, by selecting the affected cells, do a:
Format>Cells
select the Border Tab, and shutting off all the borders, (make it "None").

Might work.

Did you try going to the format menu, border and shading, change line style to none?

hi krissana80,

I've never used Works, but in Excel, PRINTING gridlines is specifically on the Page Setup / SHEET tab : Print Gridlines, Black & White etc.

Sorry, I don't know what the VIEW Window is in this respect. (If you could turn of grids in View then you'd just have a blank screen!)

If Borders was the issue you would see them on screen.

lol

Thanks to everyone that offered their assistance. What I ended up having to do it b/c it was a database document, I copied and pasted it into a Works word processor document. that worked great! thanks for your help though.

I have Works 2000 (version 5).

Assuming you mean a Works spreadsheet, Borders may be an issue as Chuck suggested.

Hew, by "View window" krisanna80 probably means the View menu, which has a Gridlines option.

krisanna80 mentioned Page Setup ; yes, there is a File -- Page Setup -- Other Options -- Print Gridlines setting. The thing is you need to look at all three things in respect of each other, to make sure something isn't over-riding something else.

HTH,
Andy

I'll always bow to XLGurus wisdom.

For my peace of mind, by Gridlines in View Menu, that is something in Works is it, not in Excel?

Thanks

Give over, Hew.

Yes, it's in Works. With Excel, on-screen gridlines is a different route (Tools -- Options -- View tab -- Window options) (at least up till XL 2000).
