When using a spreadsheet and have set it to NOT display any gridlines, when locking the top row, there is a horizontal line that is still visible. How can I get the line to NOT show when locking the top row.
If this is not possible, I would like to submit an enhancement request to have excel updated to not show ANY lines when “Gridlines” has been unselected.

If you mean the Freeze Panes feature, that line indicates which part of the sheet is "frozen".
I don't think Microsoft would be willing to implement your request. It would be very confusing for users not to be able to see which rows and/or columns have been frozen (if any).

I'm not sure what to do with this but let me explain it and maybe you can either forward this to the correct person or let me know who to contact.
I received an email today asking me if I got the answer I needed. I replied that I did not, but was directed to the correct place to submit an enhancement request. I then received a message that my email reply was blocked for spam with a useless message on how to fix it. What is there to fix? It was one simple email reply. In the email was a link for "Was this helpful? Send feedback to Microsoft", so I attempted to use the link so I can send feedback, but now got message that the page I was looking for can't be found.
Can you let me know who I should report this too?
Thanks for all the help you give us in the Excel community!

I need the top row to be fixed. I keep all my macro buttons on the top row and do not want ANY lines shown unless I activate them myself. If I can't hide the line, how can I change the line color? Regarding the macro buttons, I set the button to "Don't move or size with cells", but when I scroll the page the button moves.

I think you are out of luck; if you need to freeze the first row, Excel will show the border. It is possible to use the ribbon as an alternative means of control, either with xml or by using an add-in such as
Otherwise you could always format the 'button bar' and pretend you actually wanted the feature!
