Excel 2013 Default Blank Workbook Opens Without Vertical (Column) Grid Lines
Posted on 2015-01-14
This is a new Dell OptiPlex running Windows 7 Professional 64-bit with Microsoft Office 2013. When Excel is opened and the default blank workbook is selected, it opens without the Vertical grid lines, only the Horizontal gridlines show.
Has anyone else experienced this? I'm thinking I might have to run an Office Update?
Things I've Tried:
Checked several formatting settings to make sure that "White" isn't selected for the color, masking the grid lines.
Created a blank Excel workbook.xlsx file with grid lines and have it in the 'Startup Folder'. Now when Excel is started this file will open with grid lines, but if you update the file with text and/or data and save the workbook with a different file name.xlsx and try and reopen the updated file, NO Vertical grid lines, only Horizontal.
Tried to create an Excel template .xltx, (with grid lines added) named it book.xltx and saved it in the office15 root folder xlstart, then opened the default blank workbook, NO Vertical grid lines, only Horizontal.
Opened a previously created Excel file from over a year ago that was saved with grid lines showing, and you guessed it, it opened with No Vertical grid lines, only Horizontal.
Selecting any cell or cells or rows or columns, then grid lines show. Deselecting cells the Vertical grid line disappears.
