Gridlines in Excel allow you to see the different cells in your spreadsheet easily. By default, these lines are light gray in color in your Excel workbook. If you want more definition to the Excel gridlines, you may want to use a brighter color to define the different cells in your spreadsheet.

You can change the color of gridlines in Excel 2007 spreadsheets by completing these steps:

  1. Within Excel, click the Microsoft Office Button and click Excel Options.
  2. Under Display options for this worksheet, verify that the Show gridlines option is selected.
  3. Use the drop down arrow beside Gridlines color and select the color you want to use.
  4. Click OK.

Your gridlines will now be displayed in the color of your choice.
