How do I change the color of the grid lines in Contacts

I need to change the color of the grid lines in Contacts when arranged in rows. Somehow it has changed to white, and I am unable to make it show when the background color is also white. I know how to change it from solid to dashes/dotted lines and back, but not the color. I could also change the background color to gray and make the white lines show, but I'm really wanting the lines to be black or gray, with a white background. I'm running Office 2007 Professional in Windows XP SP2. Please advise.

    Hi, Stephen_Eu.

    Try resetting the view.

    I had tried that, but the reset simply changed the grid line style back to solid. The color did not change.

    There aren't any options I know of for setting the color of the lines.  My hope was that the view was damaged and resetting it would re-write the values and correct the problem.

    BlueDevilFan did not provide the solution but I thought he knew at least as much as I did.

    There may not be any solution other than a reinstall.
