    View non-printing table borders (MS Word 2002 SP3)

    Hopefully someone here can help me with this rather trivial item. I have created a Proposal Template for our company and there are a number of tables in it. When I view it the tables are very visible with very light border lines throughout that do not print. When someone else opens up the document the non-printing borders are not visible at all. This makes it very difficult for the users to tell where they are in the table.

    Is this a property that needs to be set up on everyone else's PC in order for them to be able to see the borders or is there something I can do within my template that will take care of this?

    I am attaching a zipped sample showing one of my tables. Hopefully you will see a light border throughout the table.

    any help is greatly appreciated.

    Toggle (Hide Gridlines) > (Show Gridlines) on the Table menu.

    This is a user setting, rather than a document setting. It affects all tables in all documents that you view.

    Thank you Stuart.

    Figures that it would be something as simple as that. I completely missed that option on the table menu.

    Thanks again for your help.
