I am trying to create a Excel document with Office Starter. However, some of the gridlines disappeared as I was working on it. Note: only some of them. I want to be able to print the gridlines, but they are still missing in print preview. Nothing I have tried has brought it back. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.
Hi BJ - I see nobody has yet responded to your query... sorry about that.
Unfortunately I can't be much help to you, I have absolutely zero experience with Office Starter and very little using Excel.
Not sure about the other moderators either but I'll give them a nudge and see if we can't maybe rustle up some assistance for you.

By a long shot I am not someone in the know when it comes to Excel.
The only experience I had with the grid line issue involved changing the print options from black or color to grey scale. That corrected it for me once upon a time.
Hope this helps and if it does, I have no idea why,
Office starter is known to be a cut down version of office, sometimes for students, sometimes for OEM's and often for third world countries.
My suggestion would be to upgrade if you can, or if not, uninstall it then reinstall and make sure all the settings are at default. By doing that, you may be able to solve it.
Get back to us either way.

Thanks for all the replies! Someone who was familiar with Word Starter gave me the solution to this problem. I have no idea why this works, but it does.
Each block of the grid is referenced as a cell. You select a single cell by left clicking on it. You select a range of cells by clicking and holding then dragging the highlight until it covers all the cells you want to check.
After selecting the range, click on the small arrow next to the Fill Bucket in the menu ribbon. A drop down will appear like that shown in the previous image. At the bottom of that drop down, check to make sure the No Fill has a box around it rather than one of the colors above it. Click on the No Fill if it doesn't.
