    Thank you! I had already created quite a few labels but when I opened the doc this morning the gridlines were gone. Now they are back. I just want to say that I am so thankful for businesses like yours that share your info with others. Trying to get a straight and easy answer from the developers of programs is elusive, at best. But you answered my question simply, logically and quickly. Thanks so much!
