Missing Excel Guide Lines

Likes # 0

Hi

I am using Excel 2003 on Windows 7

When I copy and past a number or whatever from one cell and move it to another cell, the cell that did have the number in does not have guide lines around it any longer. I mean the grey guide lines that show on screen not borders that I can set up which then sho Black on screen.

Any hel would be appreciated to this annoying problem.

Regards

Apologies if it's a daft question, but how exactly are you copying/pasting? You aren't somehow cutting/pasting instead?

Sorry, just re-read your post. Mine now makes no sense.

Hi Picklefactory

Thanks for your reply

No it's not a daft question.

No idea why I typed "copy and paste" - should have typed "Cut and Paste" which I do using the commands with the right mouse button.

Excel 2003, doesn't happen in mine, on white background the grey grid lines are still there. Only the cells that have been filled with a colour do not show the grey grid lines round them and when I 'cut and paste' a coloured cell the original goes back to white with grey grid lines round it.

Same here. I can't duplicate the issue with Excel 2007

With Office 2007 the only way I can replicate it is if grid lines are turned off and outside borders are on for all cells.

osben, I have tried to replicate your problem with out success. I am wondering if you have a macro running that would cause this to happen?

Hi Guys Thanks for your input. recap - I will check this at the weekend but I doubt it. Woolwell - No it's not that.

I am wondering if it could be a bug in the programme itself which can't be rectified with an Office repair. Perhaps the only way of sorting it is to do a complete re-install which I really don't want to have to do.

Regards
