HP Designjet Printers - Microsoft (R) Excel for Windows 3.x/95, Not Printing Gridlines

Issue:
When using an HP Designjet printer, Microsoft Excel v 4.x & 5.x for Windows 3.x/95 does not print spreadsheet gridlines.
Solution
Ensure the gridline feature in Excel 4.x/5.x for Windows is turned on. To check this feature, follow the instructions below.
  1. In Excel, select Tools, Options, View W Dialogue Box, and Window Option. Make sure there is an "X" in the box next to the gridlines option. If the gridlines box is empty, point and click in the box to place an "X" in the gridlines box.
  2. Check the front panel settings of the HP Designjet printer. Palette must equal software and Rotate must equal "0." To check these two settings in the HP Designjet printer, the printer must be ready to plot. Follow the steps below.
    1. Press ENTER, then press the DOWN arrow button until PEN SETTINGS appears.
    2. Press ENTER and press the DOWN arrow button until the PALETTE appears.
    3. Press ENTER. PALETTE= SOFTWARE should now appear.
    4. If the Palette = Software is selected, select PREVIOUS until READY TO PLOT appears.
  3. If PALETTE=SOFTWARE does not appear within the Palette window, press the DOWN arrow button until the PALETTE=SOFTWARE selection appears within the Palette window. Press ENTER to ensure that the selection is registered. Press the PREVIOUS button until the display window reads READY.
  4. Follow the above process to ensure that Rotate=0 within the PAGE FORMAT/ ROTATE menu selections. Once selected, press the PREVIOUS button until the display window reads READY.
