When running a report in excel format, is there a way to turn off the grid lines in excel? Preferably without creating an excel template.

The report I am running would look much cleaner if they weren't there.

Thanks in advance for any assistance anyone can offer.

Thanks Dan - this looks like it might work. One thing I neglected to mention though is that the report I am running is a compound report where I am outputting to 3 separate tabs. Would like to turn the grid lines off on all three tabs if possible.

Any thoughts on how to implement what you suggested above with the use of compound reports?

According to the WebFOCUS New Features v7.6.9 document, you can play with borders in EXL2K formatted reports:

quote:
Excel (EXL2K Format) Style Enhancements
The StyleSheet options ORIENTATION=LANDSCAPE and BORDER=ON are now supported for EXL2K report output.
The BORDER attribute supports the same options as currently available for FORMAT PDF except for border options available in Adobe PDF but not available in Microsoft Excel


Unfortunately I can't test this, we have v7.6.8.

If you don't mind applying a background color, will automatically give you gridless report.
 TABLE FILE CAR
 SUM DEALER_COST
 BY COUNTRY
 ON TABLE SET STYLE *
  TYPE=REPORT, BACKCOLOR=YELLOW, $
 ENDSTYLE
 ON TABLE PCHOLD FORMAT EXL2K
END

I use background color = white

ON TABLE SET STYLE *
TYPE=REPORT, BACKCOLOR=WHITE, $
ENDSTYLE

I often use it at the column level rather than the whole report. That way I still have grids in headers, footers, titles etc
