Using Mac Excel 2004, I created a 12-column grid for my offline graphic design work.  I have my layout done with my borders.  I'd like to print with gray borders instead of black.  I've read the following online tutorials:

Tutorial 1
Instead of grid lines you can select the dotted lines from
FormatCells>Border> and select the color as Gray 40% or 25%

Tutorial 2
To make grid lines lighter go to Tools>Options>View and change the color to
something lighter.

Tutorial 1 didn't work for me.  Tutorial 2, there is no "Options" choice in my Tools menu.

Any suggestions?

Disregard.  I did tutorial 1 on a Windows PC and it worked.
