HOW TO SHOW OR REMOVE GRIDLINES, ROW NUMBERS AND COLUMN NAMES IN EXCEL?

INTRODUCTION

The Gridlines are the criss cross lines which defines the cells in the Excel. Although there is no problems with these lines but what if we don’t want to see them in the printouts or we don’t want to see them.

For such cases, these options are available in EXCEL.

Similarly there may be a case when we don’t want Row numbers or Column names to be printed on the paper or to be seen while working. This articles discusses these options to make the task easier.

If SHOW is checked in grid lines, the grid lines will be shown and if print is CHECKED in grid lines, lines will be printed. If unchecked , they’ll not be shown or printed as per the case.

Similarly if column names (A,B,C…) and row numbers (1,2,3…) are unchecked, they’ll be hidden. THE OPTION NAME FOR COLUMN NAMES AND ROW NUMBERS is HEADINGS.


EXCEL provides us the option for SHOWING OR HIDING the GRIDLINES,  COLUMN NAMES, ROW NUMBERS while working or while printing them on paper.

 

BUTTON LOCATION FOR SHOWING OR HIDING THE GRIDLINES AND HEADINGS

The options for hiding or showing the gridlines and headings is present under the PAGE LAYOUT TAB under the SHEET OPTION section as shown in the picture below.
