Q: Word Starter Excel missing some gridlines

Hi all
I am trying to create a Excel document with Office Starter. However, some of the gridlines disappeared as I was working on it. Note: only some of them. I want to be able to print the gridlines, but they are still missing in print preview. Nothing I have tried has brought it back. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

 Have you considered the free LibreOffice?  It contains a pretty much compatible version of Office and it's free.  Of course you could spend $150 or so and buy something like the Home and Student version of Office too.

Might help us to help you if you told us what you have tried. Most members do not have clairvoyant powers.

What is the version number of Excel that you are using? Don't know if there are other starter versions besides 2010.

Among the things you have tried, have you specifically tried changing the border settings around selected groups of cells and between the cells in a selected group of cells?

EDIT: If the MS-Excel file isn't too large and doesn't contain any private or sensitive data, you could upload it in a post for us to check out.

Do you have a fill color set? The default is none. The disappearing grid is a common "feature" when a fill color is set but the lines should still print if you have selected print gridlines.

Select the cell range or a single cell and check it there's fill color set.

This program is so frustrating! I am used to using a full version of Word and the Starter version is much leaner.

I can't figure out how to remove the grid lines from my blank doc template or documents made from it. I even tried making a new blank doc template but the gridlines appeared there, too.

There is no "View" option in the toolbar and for the life of me, I cant figure out how to remove the gridlines. I know that I somehow added it recently but i don't recall how; I have gone to all the toolbar menus and not found a mention of gridlines. the MS website didn't help either.

Can you help me? many thanks

The original file had lined separation of cells but, for some reason, all the cells are now separated by gridlines. This wasn't the case when first used this file and I must have done something to create this but now I can't see a way of undoing it. My other Excel 2016 files have cells separated by lines not gridlines so something had happened with this file.

In Excel 97, is there a way to make "gridlines" the default setting in Page Setup, Sheet?

A:Excel 97: Print Gridlines by Default

Find the location of the XLSTART folder on your PC and write down the path.

Also, double-click the folder and see if there is a file in there called personal.xls. If NOT, follow the directions under #1. If there is, follow #2.

New Excel workbook.
Turn gridlines on.
File-Save as.
Call it personal.xls and save it in the XLSTART folder.
While still open, hit Window-Hide.
Save again.
Close Excel.

Open the file called personal.xls.
Hit Window-Unhide.
Turn gridlines on.
Hit Window-Hide.
Save again.
Close Excel.


When you open Excel again, this should be turned on.

I found that someone else had the same problem in a closed thread. I had created a spreadsheet and had increased the size of the cells. When I tried the remedy suggested--go to format>view>pattern tab and click on No Pattern, what happened was that gridliness were restored but at the original size not the size of my new cells (in the areas I designated for restoration.

I would simply like to restore gridlines to the spreadsheet to conform to the expanded size of the cells as present.

Whether it is an exisiting document or a new document opened in word tiny boxes appear on the worksheet which will not turn off.
Originally I thought they may have been just gridlines but when you toggle the hide/show gridlines more lines just show up or disappear leaving the original lines (Boxes) intact.
I have never seen anything like this before and am stumped.

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.

When I open a spreadsheet now there are no fridlines. Previously I had solid gray gridlines and after fiddling with the settings I can now produce gray dotted gridlines. See attachment. How do I get default gray solid gridlines?

After hours of research online, I discovered the problem - the contrast brightness setting on my monitor. Problem solved.

A:Solved: OFFICE 2012 - Excel gridlines gone

Strange at it may sound - when you go to select the Grid Line Color, the top bar of the Color Box has a Color Square and says Automatic. Pick the color Red, just to follow this. Now, you will see the color Red in the Gridline Color selection. Select to change the color again, and you will see the same color square you saw before, and the word Automatic. The Color of the square did not change, and does not indicate the color being used. Click on the word Automatic, and you will get the Automatic setting, instead of the dotted gridlines that you get when you select a specific color (like Black). Good Luck.

1) when it gets there, it looses the grid lines - no matter that the gridline checkmark is on. I really do need those gridlines.

2) In Lotus I could use keystrokes for copying (such as cell formulas, which would then retain their relative function, or range and cell formatting, etc. Is there a way in Excel to do that, rather than having to go to Home, etc. and using multiple mouse clicks?

I have a AMD Radeon HD 6300 series adapter, running windows 7 x64. I have a dual monitor setup, the same monitor on each port an Acer S230hl. One port is an HDMI the other is a VGA. the issue i have is that when i have a worksheet open i can see the gridlines to the cells on the HDMI connected monitor, if i move the sheet over to the vga monitor the gridlines are so light i cannot make out the different cells. it looks like one clean sheet of white paper. i tried different contrast and brightness settings and no luck. anyone have some ideas, or maybe had the same problem and found a fix?

First thing to try would be doing a repair on the Office 2007 installation. Typically if you are missing something it may not have completed properly. Just insert the Office 2007 disc, and then select repair. It should go through and fix any issues and install any missing components the previous setup did not complete.

If that does not work, you may need to completely uninstall Office 2007, reboot and then re-install Office. At that point I would recommend a full install or complete install versus the typical install. This will make sure that you are installing all components.

Let me know if you have any issues.

It was a trial installation that required you to upgrade it by purchasing MSOffice before it expired. Unfortunately, it typically isn't present in the Recovery partition so there isn't anything you can do about it now.

Good Morning,

I recently bought a new computer and it came with Microsoft Office Starter. Using Microsoft Word Starter I made a document showing some items I collect in one column and what I paid for them in another column. I finished and saved it. This morning when I went to look at it the items they were not lined up from side to side like I had them. I need to do it again and was wondering what I did wrong. Also there is a space between the lines about a 1/2 tall. Is there a way I can shorten that up like the text you are reading here? With the big gap between lines it takes two pieces of paper to print the same amount that could be on one page. Thanks for any help you can give me.

MS Office Starter 2010 is free, but is limited and contains advertising, which is why your anti-virus complains.

I think that MS Office Click-to-Run is a way for the impatient to buy Office online. Maybe I misunderstand it.

I would uninstall both of those, but I can see advantages for people with different needs and wants.

Did you buy MS Office or do you just have a trial version? If the former the advantage to keeping it should be obvious. Probably it's the latter, and the advantage is that you could experiment and see if there are any features in it that Open Office doesn't have and that are worth paying for before the trial period ends.

does the problem occur only in Word or in general on your computer?

Do you have a mouse connected to your laptop and if yes, is it turned on? It might be caused directly by your mouse (i.e. defected laser - quirky surface).

If not mouse is present, can you normally use the touchpad at all times otherwise? Does your laptop (along with the touchpad) become too hot? You can disable the touchpad on any laptop without the need for third-party software. Just go to your Mouse settings from your Windows Control Panel.

I have initiated the 'Word Starter' on my new pc, Word started off ok and I managed to create a letter template, but now when I open Word and use it I find that it does not close down, the little blue circle starts and nothing happens... then it says 'Not Responding' and I have to click the red x again and a box comes up asking me to re-start or close Word, and after a short period it closes down.???

I use Word Starter on Windows 7 and want to remove the Microsoft advertising panel on the right of the screen which takes up too much space . On the left is a "navigation" panel which I can close but I can't find any way of getting rid of the one on the right . It's headed up " Get Started" but is an advertising block currently pushing Office 365 but is an unnecessary distraction which I don't want . Am I stuck with this as part of the Word Starter package ??

Should be in the Page Setup, change to the wanted size and then select the "Default" button.

The Default button sets the current entries as the "Default". It does NOT reset back to what was default as a lot of users think.

I just bought a Toshiba lap-top, Windows 7, with Microsoft Word Starter 2010 pre-installed.

In a blank document the pre-set margins do not function on the screen. When I type, the letters just keep going on and on to the right. If I look at the "print display" it shows the letters correctly on the page.

If I customize the margins the same thing happens --- the margins do not stop the letters from just going on one line to the right into infinity.

So, therefore, I do not have a WYSIWYG page view. How do I get the margins to work properly?

Please advise, Thank you Ed-L

A:Word Starter 2010 margins not working

What you describe suggests that you're viewing documents in "Web Layout" mode, where the page margins are ignored.
You need to change the view to "Print Layout", you'll then see that the text is 'wrapped' at the margins.

To change to "Print Layout" view, click the View tab, then click the Print Layout button.

Note: instruction applies to Word 2007 as I don't have 2010 version

I created a scheduling worksheet on excel that I want to have on my desktop(I schedule 4 people as part of my job); my problem is that I would like to get rid of all the extra pages in each sheet. i.e. I would like to have pages for scheduling in August in Sheet1 but JUST those pages, not the bazillions of extras that are also there.

The only way I can get any MS office programs to open is to right click and choose the "open with" option. I check the box to Use as default, but they still won't open the next time.
I tried run > winword /r to reset word, but that didn't help either.
All the icons are the same, a little blue chemistry beaker.
In properties, the type of files say they are, "FFV files (docx), FFV files (xlsx), etc".
How do I get these files to open the normal double click way?

A:Excel and Word files will not open in Excel and Word

Have you tried repairing the Office installation (via Start > Windows Control Panel > Programs > Programs & Features > Microsoft Office (version) > Change > Repair)?

Aside from that if the file types are "FFV files (docx), FFV files (xlsx), etc", that suggests you've installed some other software that has taken over the file associations. In that case, you might consider uninstalling that software; otherwise you'll need to reset the file associations, by right-clicking each Office file-type (docx, xlsx, etc.) and using Open With>Choose default program to re-associate them with the correct Office application.

With my Windows 7 Home Premium I use Microsoft Word Starter 2010, which came preloaded to my laptop. I save much information in it's standard 'document' page. When I click on a saved document, after about 5 seconds it displays the small window "Microsoft Word Starter 2010" and goes through some process, telling me it is 'starting', 'processing' and takes a further 10 to 20 seconds for the actual document to open. This happens even when opening a blank document. Is there any way that I can speed up the opening of a document.

Computer 1: Windows 7 sp1 & Office 2010 Starter

After Patch Tuesday 9/10/2013, Excel 2010 is no longer able to read Excel 2003 files. In fact, all Excel 2003 files have changed from the standard Excel Icon to a non-standard orange Icon. Attempts to open these files will bring up the Install Office 2010 Starter applet where ?Activate? is the first of three prompts (don?t remember the other two). It?s as if Office 2010 Starter is not installed, but it is because Word 2010 and Excel 2010 open all files created on the computer.

All 2003 files were created on computer 2: Windows 7 sp1 / Office 2003 computer (that has all updates as well as the 2810048 repeating install bug).

I installed the Excel 2003 viewer on computer 1, and it resolves the issue, but it makes the viewer the default for all Excel files which the user does not want. Uninstalled the viewer restores the original problem and Excel 2010 is back to the default.

If error repeats download another Starter ISO or check HASH on existing to make sure it's complete.

Microsoft word starter using windows 10 opens my files occasionally in read only format and I have tried just about every suggestion in your forum within my limited skills but I offer this in the hope it might help - I notice it is most likely to occur
if opening a file from within the software, if one steps outside and opens it from the desktop it is more unlikely to happen.  When previously using compatibility mode it did not happen but that did not like files that contained any downloaded pictures
with the hyperlink still active. When re-opening them subsequently they could not be edited until clicking on "edit now" which is why I used the

conversion option only to get this problem which is annoying and not good enough.

Hiya, there are a couple of things you can try to see if they are affecting the issue you are having.

Double check the Spreadsheet properties to make sure that they are not becoming readonly when saved. Right Click on on doc in Windows Explorer and click Properties, make sure read only is not ticked.
Secondly check the setting in the area highlighted in xl2, especially the share workbook. It may be that for some reason it thinks someone still has the spreadsheet open.
Thirdly try the option in xl3

Let me know how you get on.

How can I use the wildcard in Word to stand for a single missing word? In the Google search syntax for example, it's very simple if you want to search for a phrase that has a missing word in it, such as "the * of feeling good". However in Word, this syntax does not appear to work - the asterisk just stands for any number of characters, regardless of word boundries. I've followed the instructions in Help and tried using < and > (beginning and ending of a word) in conjunction with the asterisk, but doesn't seem to symbolise a single word either. Can anyone help?

I'm working with a 1997-2003 Compatibility View spreadsheet in Excel Starter and I use Comments (the little windows to pop-up when you hover the mouse over a cell) throughout.

I don't see how to edit or delete them, when I right-click, it only gives me "show/hide" them.

Try showing it, then click inside the comment box and start editing.

Hey all,

I have come to you in a fit of desperation. My USB drive was stolen recently and my master Excel data file was lost, which contained all my compiled data from my most recent lab experiment.

Anyway, I have charts of all the important stuff in a word document. The data is there, I can hover on each data point and see the values, and the axes and chart are all accessible for editing.

My question is, how the heck do I extract that data back out of the chart into a table or Excel spreadsheet? There MUST be a way that is better than copying down each data point one at a time

Your help is greatly appreciated.

A:Excel chart in Word 2010: extract chart values? Lost Excel data file!!!! Help.

Hi welcome to the fourm.
I don't know it reverse engineering is possible.
Something like convert chart to table?

One thing you could try is copy the chart back to a new Excel file and see if more is possible there than in Word?

Like I said never needed this. Have you googled for something like Excel data reverse enginieering?
Maybe something come up.

i can't get gridlines to show up on printed copies of spreadsheets in ms works. It says to select gridlines under view menu. this does not work. help!!


Hi nighthawk2.
I haven't used works in years but there should be a "print gridlines" option somewhere in your page setup menu.
In Excel 03, it's at File>Page Setup> Sheet Tab. Should be something similar in works.

I copy and paste excel spreadsheet data into Kompozer web editor then upload to my web site. When viewing the web page in IE, I can't see the gridlines or they appear almost white. They are fine in Kompozer and read fine in Firefox.

Any answers?

I have developed a form in Excel with information regarding investments. I want to delete the information that is now on the form, and print the clear form to use as a worksheet. (enter information by hand). THe frustrating problem; when I remove the original information the gridlines also disappear, even while I have "gridlines" checked in the Page Setup. How can I print this or any blank form, showing gridlines?

I have recently purchased Microsoft Office Professional 2000 with Access Previously I used Microsoft Office Professional for Windows 95 with Access
When I convert a file created on Version 7 to Version 9 I seem to lose the ability to print a simple Table or Query with gridlines. A new file is no problem; gridlines can be printed. Can you tell me how to print gridlines on the converted files please.

Hello I found an answer to this question but it was specific to his form. I have several Excel Logs (Tables) that contain information that is also entered into a separate form. Some forms are in excel and some are in word. I would like to hit a button that transfers a row of data to the form so i only have t enter data once. The forms will have additional information that will be entered. The forms are saved as a specific file type and are also printed so the answer that i found on this site may work but it puts the data into a different spread sheet in the same workbook and i need to send the data to a new workbook and in one case to a word doc. Can someone help me out. I have attached a couple examples of what i currently do.

Thanks for the help

Two weird and maybe connected problems -- new, and not resolved with a repair/reinstall of Word/Office.

1 - I cannot get the gridlines in tables to go away. I finally found a hotkey (cntrl+alt+U), but even that doesn't work consistently.

2 - I cannot get the delete key to delete highlighted blocks of text.

I haven't intentionally changed any settings, and this is new. Yes, the delete key is alive on the kepboard (it will delete single characters).

I am trying to make a chart for record keeping purposes in Excel. I want to have most of the cells empty. They will be filled in later by hand as information is obtained. But when I try to make my chart, Excel only prints the gridlines of the cells that have something in them. (the headings of the columns at the top of the page) How do I get it to print the gridlines for all the cells, including the empty ones?


A:How Do I Print Gridlines Of Empty Cells?

Hi bizwiz2,
Left click and hold while dragging your mouse over the cells you want to have gridlines. After you have highlighted the cells you want, Right click in them. Select format cells. There will be several options including borders. Borders lets you select the thickness of the lines, etc.

A:Why Do Gridlines & Street Lines Not Show?

If you don't have a separate Graphics card that can cause this, the on-board Graphics can't show the bands very clearly if at all.

Also you might find they are clearer if you change your Desktop Theme.

I have set up some queries in Access 2000 and now would like to generate reports that look like the query datasheets, single-spaced with gridlines. I'm obviously a novice at Access but would appreciate some help on this. I would just use the query datasheets except that I need to print in landscape mode and did not find a way to permanently change the layout to landscape mode.
