I am trying to copy text and gridlines from Excel and paste them into a Word doc. When I do I am able to see the gridlines on the screen, but when I print the document the gridlines will not appear. I went into Excel and choose gridlines in page setup, but they still won't print. How can I print the girdlines. Using table in Word will not work.

The SUBTOTAL and AGGREGATE functions ignore hidden rows. AGGREGATE can also exclude error cells and more.

Hi Thomas,

When you paste into Word, you have a few options. Paste will generally dump the contents as a graphic.
Try Edit > Paste Special and see if you have the option to paste as an Excel object. That should keep the formatting.
