    After closing out of a document in MS Word 2000 and then reopening it, the table gridlines that I have hidden appear once again on the screen. Also, when I email the table as a word attachment with the gridlines hidden, the gridlines automatically reappear in the document when the attachment is opened with Word 2000. How can I hide the gridlines permanently from viewers of Word documents using Word 2000? The Help feature in Word 2000 does not address this issue. Interestingly, the problem does not occur when opening the same document with Word 2003. Thanks.

    The grid lines are controlled by the local copy of Word. The grid can not be turn off in a document and expect it to be not visible the another machine has the grid turned on.

    The "Borders" are what can be controlled within the document.
