Losing those lines...

If you have in the past, or currently do any form of SSRS (SQL server reporting services) development in .NET, then you must have encountered those annoying grid lines that appear by default.
These lines, besides irritating the developer does not enhance the look or functionality of the report you seek to design.

So today, after some fruitless scholarly research (on google and yahoo) here is what you do to make those lines go away, leaving you with a clutter free work space
  1. Click on the top-left corner of your report body to highlight your tablix. make sure you see all 6 pull knobs
  2. Hit F4 (here's the short cut they don't teach you in school :)...that "Properties" window pops right out. 
  3. Look for "Border", click in the property value box and type "None"
  4. Hit "Enter", then press the "Esc" button.
  5. Click "Save" then find and click on the "Preview", "Deploy" your changes and enjoy.
