You can go to the Worksheet > click on Format from menu bar > go to Format Borders and under Sheet tab change Cell, Pane, & Header to 'None' > also go to Format Lines and under Sheet change all to 'None'
This should resolve your issue in Dashboard.
If this helps mark it correct so others can benefit from it. Thank you.
Can you attach a sample workbook with this issue Ray? Extract and package the data source - I can assist better if I can re-create the problem. Thank you.
I was able to figure out the problem... It turns out the width of the horizontal object was not wide enough, and what appears to be a field was extra space in the worksheet being wrapped. I increased the width and that gray "field" disappeared.
Thanks for your suggestions and advice.
