Hi Jason,

I was searching this forum for how to hide gridlines in the excel output and came across this code snippet in a response from you :

You should be able to do this in the onRender for the grid.
Add something like this:
if (reportContext.getOutputFormat() == "xls"){
this.getStyle().borderBottomStyle = "NONE";
this.getStyle().borderLeftStyle = "NONE";
this.getStyle().borderRightStyle = "NONE";
this.getStyle().borderTopStyle = "NONE";
}


I used it in my report but the gridlines are still visible in the excel output.

Could you please help me understand what I need to do to make it work?

Many thanks.

What version of BIRT Are you using?

Try the attached report. First preview with the Web Viewer in the
toolbar and then export to excel.

Thanks much for your response.

I guess I was trying to eliminate the gridlines of the excel sheet itself and not that of the grid in the repory layout.

Is there a way to acheive this?

Thanks!
