Default Grid lines obscured by fill color

If you set the border color using the Custom Color dialog (Format-Border-Color-More Colors-Custom) to the RGB colors R:208 G:215 B:229 then it should give you the exact color as the default gridline color.

One workaround...

Add cell borders to repalce the invisible gridlines. Select the block of

cells, right-click, and select Format Cells. On the Border tab of the Format

Cells dialog, select a line style. Click the Outline button, then the Inside

button, then OK.

Hope this helps,

When I apply a fill color to a block of cells, the grid lines don't

show in that block of cells. I don't expect that there is a way to

force the grid lines to show, but I'm hoping that I'm wrong. Thanks

any workarounds, if they exist.

thank you!
