Gridlines print and are not supposed to.

Alright. I have a page where I have whited out the gridlines on the entire worksheet except for one area. The plan was to make it look as though my graph is on a white page.

Well, it looks great! The problem is when I print. All of the gridlines print that are inside the print area. When I do print preview it does not show.

I have made sure that the print gridlines box is unchecked under the PRINT PREVIEW...SHEET. I have also made sure the box is unchecked under TOOLS...OPTIONS...VIEW...GRIDLINES.

What else could be causing it to print incorrectly? Please tell me you have a fix for this. icon_banghead.gif

How did you "white out" the gridlines? If you simply changed the color in the format menu, all you really did was add borders to all of those cells.

Yes, I changed all of the gridlines to white. So you are right I did add borders to every cell.

But, I did this to everypage in my workbook and only two pages print this way.

Also, if my printer only prints black and white (which it does) it still should not show up as the borders are white.

I see where you are going with this but if it had happened to every other page I would agree that that would be the problem.

Thanks for the quick response. icon_smile.gif

Hrm. I'm a bit stumped, then. I can't seem to recreate what you're describing in XP.

Random thought: Have any of the printer settings been changed?

Re: Gridlines print and are not supposed to.

On each sheet choose File|Page Setup|Sheet tab and make sure Gridlines is unchecked. White borders have no effect if this is checked (except in Print Preview).
