I am trying to add an excel spreadsheet to my webpage just for a display but the gridlines will not display. How can I do this?

Have you highlighted the grid lines on the spreadsheet before you upload?

Hi Sandy7469, if you are wanting to add a visual for your spreadsheet to your website, I would have to recommend you save the spreadsheet content into an image, and upload the image to your site. If you select the spreadsheet content and copy it, open paint and you should be able to paste the information there. Save the image, and upload.
I hope this is helpful.

This may also be useful:
If you are trying to add a spreadsheet that you want others to be able to collaborate on, you might consider saving the spreadsheet from your computer to a place called "Google Docs" and then create a link in your website that points to the document that you saved. Keep in mind you may have to employ password protection measures if you only want some people to have access (different subject). If you don't have a Google Account, (one is needed in order to have Google Docs), you can open one for free at It's a pretty impressive service. I use it to create all kinds of forms that people can electronically fill out and Google keeps track of all the responses for me. They even place the responses on a spreadsheet. The service is actually a Cloud service, which I found is extremely useful because of all the added services at no cost.
