i have a simple spreadsheet working and i opened it up the other day and each column was filled in grey. i could select an individual column but i couldn't edit the text. If i preveiw the worksheet, i can see the text. i then tried changing the zoom. it was set at 100 but when i changed it to 50 or 75, i can now see the text and edit it. i changed it back to 100 and got the grey columns again. so then i changed it to 99 and it worked fine.

Could anyone help to fix the problem please
