no no no no....
IF you type up an Excel report adn print it out, you dont see teh cell borders. You only see the light grey borders on your comp screen. However, if you go to format cell, you can select to hilight those grey borders and make them black. THen when you print out the report, you see teh borders.
THe pencil tool made it easier in that I dont have to go to the format cell window every time i want to add borders. Also the pencil tool allows me to make more complicated tables.
