I am using Excel 2007 for the first time and find the gridlines delineating
the cells are so faint as to be nearly indistinguishable. I can go into the
cell formatting and modify the normal style, and it is just the way I want
it. But I can't find a way to make Excel remember this and treat it as the
new definition of the Normal style. I don't want to have to redefine Normal
every time I open a new spreadsheet. Someone please help!
The changes you describe are changing the Border color and NOT gridlines.

...Printing problem from Excel 2007
I am having an issue with printing from Excel 2007. Many users when
printing from Excel with get several pages of non-sensical "junk"
printed out on the pages. If it actually prints what is on the page,
none of the items are in the cells, but look like they are just
randomly thrown about the page. I have found that this most often is
related to the Calibri font somehow, because I instruct them to change
the font to Arial and all prints fine. That being said, if the user
converts the Excel sheet into a PDF and print, it prints perfect. This

In BP 3.0 several tables are created in the Dynamics database to support the

When opening many of my excel files ,which all have the same modification

files is 'delimited'. All of the files ,including a few word doc.s have had
their data changed to show all " y " with two dots above the letter for as
far as the eye can see. No import or export has been done with the files and
no modifications were done on that date, as far as I know.
Is this a corruption problem or is their some 'fix' that I am overlooking.

I am converting lotus123 files to excel2002. One problem is that in lotus, literals are ignored when found in a cell within a formula.

You can't do that in Excel.

The above is an example, but it aplies to any menu. Before, if I pressed say,
ALT F, the drop down menu would appear and I could press, say, C and get to
the submenu. Now I have to press Enter, before the C, which is a bother.
On my Windows 2000 version 5.00.2195 with Excel '97 and Excel 2003 the

2)Cut an paste the information onto a excel spreedsheet then print it that
way by using a macro but that is a last resort.
1) 2) and 3) Reject your manager. If it doesn't fit, it doesn't.
