With your permission, if I can recommend. It can help us all if you upload an Excel file (without sensitive data), no picture. Even if it is said that a picture can say a thousand words, it is certainly not in the case of Excel, on the contrary in some cases. This would also be a blessing for all of us, as we can understand the problem much better, a win-win situation for everyone.

* Knowing the Excel version and operating system would also be an advantage.


Thank you for your understanding and patience

It could be printer driver settings in part of printing quality. You may check on another printer, e.g. Print to PDF if gridlines are printed or not.
