Question about Border of table in Word

I am using WordXP in this machine . I normally use tables to format my documents . So , I always set the borders of my tables to 'No Borders' . The table borders appear in grey in any view except in Print Preview . I feel fine with it . But when I take the same file to my boss's computer , the borders don't show in any color , totally transparent . I want to know where I can set my boss's Word to let the 'No Border' table's border shown in grey .

My system info :
Windows XP Pro SP2
Word XP

My boss's system info :
Windows XP Pro
Word 2000

P.S. The same file's 'No Border' table borders appear in grey in other machines that are running Word 2000 ...

Here in Word 2000, in the full Table menu, the last entry but one, right above Table Properties is "Hide grid lines" when they are shown and "Show grid lines" when they are hidden.

It's mentioned in Page down to figure 3 and the text next to it.

Hope this helps.
