Grid lines on screen

Posted by Bill Lean on December 30, 1999 3:49 PM

The "default" light grey grid lines on my screen are bugging me. I wish to do some free-form stuff, like add a background and graphics to a sheet.
How do I suppress them? Easy enough when printing, but I'd like it to show up on the user's screen blank, then put in my own grid in certain areas.
Thank you,

Thanks, Ivan. Happy new year to you. Did you notice the timestamp on your reply? Mr. Excel got a booboo.
My first Y2k encounter. Wow.
You weren't sitting on 20 cases of spam and bottled water with a shotgun were you?
I didn't think so.

Happy new year to you Bill.
No I didn't notice the date !? :-)
Looks like Matt will have to fix this up!!
