I turned on the Gridlines checkbox but I still don't have any gridlines on my screen.

What do I need to do to turn on the gridlines.

In the Options > Advanced window, scroll down to halfway down the pane and there is an option for Gridline colour. Check that this is not set to white.

Alternatively, if the cells have been formatted with a white fill, the gridlines will disappear.

Alternative number 2, the cells have had white borders enabled.

Thanks

Thanks Rob:
The last person who worked on it did a WHITE FILL.  Ugggh..
Once I got rid of the white fill, the grid lines came back!
