    Grid Lines in a Table (2002)

    I created a table, filled it, and then wanted to hide the gridlines. I put the cursor in a cell, clicked Table, Select Table to select the whole table, then Table Hide Gridlines, but the gridlines still print. Am I missing something?

    How about Table>Table Properties..>Table tab>Borders and Shading>Borders tab>None.

    There is a bit of a misunderstanding here. Table gridlines never print.

    Table borders are visible on screen and appear on the printer. You normally access them from Format > Borders and Shading.

    Table gridlines appear on screen but don't print. They are enabled or disabled application wide and affect the on screen appearance of all tables in all documents, they are intended to help you format tables that don't otherwise have any visible borders.

    Thank you Jonh and Stuart. That cleared up the mystery.
