If it is, converting to HTML will not display the grid.
The display that I posted is an jpg image, uploaded to photobucket
then post into the HTML tags that are supplied by RHT.

I am running a MAC so I use a program called GRAB which just grabs exactly what you want,
Example; open the program then select the section that you want to grab, or grab the whole window
save it as a JPG upload to photobucket then post it.
It seems alot to do, but real easy. It is the only way you will get the grid to display, HTML does not understand the grid lines
or columns.
If you do decide to go this way I suggest you just save the the same spreadsheet as you edit then overwrite your upload.

Magic you can save an Excel spreadsheet as a HTML file, then copy and paste into your HTML converter
then paste in between the HTML tags

Thats what I was thinking Stormy, never really played with excel and spreadsheets, so wasn't sure if you could export to html.

I think that is what Bundy is looking to do

On the flip side of that, you can still format into columns just without gridlines.
When finished work is done in the spreadsheet do a Webpage preview then you can see if you columns do not run into each other,
if they do run, then go back to the spreadsheet adjust the columns wider then preview again, once satisfied, cut and paste into MAGIC converter then post in between the HTML tags in the forum. DONE DEAL will be formatted  just without the grid. 8-)

I use 2007 excel (although any should work) copy and close down the file before before pasting so make sure it has already been saved, if a new file.  The cheating part and this is where I will come unstuck after MSN closes down is to paste into MSN, click box at bottom 'use html to create your page' and click box at top right 'use plain text editor'.  You taught me that little trick and I think you also found a program that would do the same thing after MSN closes remember we trialed it.

The trick is to close the excel document before pasting, think it was saintly who taught me that.
