Using excel office 365. Cell borders appear on spreadsheet correctly and appear on print preview but stubbornly refuse to appear on the printed page itself. Please help.

You have probably also activated the entry "Draft Quality" in the "File, Page Setup, Table" menu.

In this mode, Excel suppresses the grid lines and only provides the printer with the cell entries. Uncheck "Draft Quality" and you'll get the table as you want it.


Which OS (operating system) is it?
if it is a mac, here additional information
