ASP to Excel show gridlines

I'm using classic VBScript to write a page out to Excel however the worksheet that is created has the standard Excel gridlines disabled. I've found a few threads that suggest this can be controlled and enabled in my output however none of the threads offer a concise or functioning piece of code to do this.

To be clear, I am not seeking to apply borders to my output data in Excel, but instead I want to enable the gridlines that usually appear by default across the entire worksheet and not just where my data appears.

Hi,

It should be as follows

Set objXL = WScript.CreateObject("Excel.Application")
....
objXL.ActiveWindow.DisplayGridlines = True
....
