Change the gridline style and background color in a datasheet

  1. Open a table, query, form, view, or stored procedure in Datasheet view (Datasheet view: A view that displays data from a table, form, query, view, or stored procedure in a row-and-column format. In Datasheet view, you can edit fields, add and delete data, and search for data.).
  2. On the Format menu, click Datasheet.
  3. Click the options you want.

 Note   Changing the format of a specific datasheet overrides the default datasheet format defined in the Datasheet tab of the Options dialog box (Tools menu). Changing the default datasheet format affects new datasheets, but does not affect existing datasheets.
