    Tables not showing gridlines (Word 97)

    When I print multiple copies of a particular table in Word 97, I get the gridlines on only the first of the prints; the rest have no gridlines. All the data, text, etc. appears on pages 1 through x but the gridlines are gone.

    Has anyone seen this? Any idea what causes it? <img src=/S/boxedin.gif border=0 alt=boxedin width=25 height=20>

    Have you turned on the "Borders" for the second part of your table. Grid lines do NOT print but borders do.

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    Multiple prints hmmm.

    If you print multiple copies of one page do you get the same problem or is it only when you print several pages (and collate them) that the problem occurs.

    It sounds like your printer is running out of memory. You could try not background printing to make your PC do more work and the printer do less. You could also check to see if there is an update to the drivers you have loaded for that printer.

    Thanks! We're trying to print this by redirecting it to a printer with LOTS of memory! Let's see if this does it!
