Default Why does the blank cells blink black and white on my excel spread.

When I am in any spreadsheet in Excel the blank cells blink black and white.

Excel on its own doesn't support blinking cells.

If everything is ok with your video display/driver, then maybe the developer of
the workbook thought that blinking cells would be useful.

Try closing excel.
then start it in safe mode.
windows start button|run
excel /safe

file|open (your workbook)

Do the cells still blink?

If yes, I have no idea.

If no, talk to the developer and ask him/her why and how to change it.

Do you have any VBA code in an add-in or your Personal.xls workbook?

Go to ToolsAdd-ins and uncheck all add-ins.

Close Excel then re-open. Blinking or not?

Open Excel in Safe mode to stop all code action and files opening from XLSTART
or Alternate startup location.

StartRun "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office\excel.exe" /s

With any workbook open, blinking or not?

If not blinking, you have some code somewhere that is causing the blinking.

If still blinking?.......hang around, maybe someone else can help.
