    Calendar Wizard (XP-SR2)

    I've been using the calendar wizard to print calendars for many years and in all previous versions of Word, when I printed the calendar, the gridlines, or text boxes, or whatever they are called, have printed. I'm referring to the 'boxes' that enclose the dates on the calendar. I hope this makes sense. When I tried to print my first calendar with XP, the gridlines were hidden, so I changed to 'show gridlines.' This does not help when printing, though, they do not print. I thought I would find something under page layout, but if it's there, I'm not seeing it. I know this is a trivial question for this forum, but I really would like to be able to print calendars as I have in the past. I like the little boxes. <img src=/S/doh.gif border=0 alt=doh width=15 height=15>

    Thanks in advance for any assistance.

    I haven't used this feature, I actually had to dig out the install CD to see what it is.

    As you know, the calendar is a table. The boundaries of individual cells can appear on the screen two different ways: (1) "gridlines," faint gray lines for your reference only, and (2) cell borders, which can take on any color or pattern. Only borders will print out. You can add them by selecting the days to outline and using the Format>Borders dialog. Why they aren't turned on by default is a mystery to me.

    Thank you so very much!

    I now have my 'little boxes' back. After I read your reply, I knew what I had been doing wrong. I had not been selecting the entire calendar. Once I selected the entire calendar and went to Format>Borders, I was able to choose Grid>Apply to Table, and that solved the problem.

    Thank you for your prompt reply and for helping me resolve this problem.
