    I am doing a formal lab report and it is required to draw your vector graph on the computer... I tried to use tables, but I could not get enough boxes to form graph paper.. then I just used a graphic paper template in PDF form... but that did not let me draw on it... So, can someone please tell me how I could make boxes that look like graph paper AND be able to draw lines on it... My exam is due tomorrow.. so any help guys and gals would be appreciated.

    don't have excel

    I don't have excel, just pages and keynote.... I know you can do this on Winblows guys.. there must be a way on the mac. Or is really Windows and office that much better?

    Open Grapher and size the graph how you want it to print and then just press command + P, instant grapher paper.

    Excel is a very blunt instrument for drawing graphs. If you want something which is free, you might look into Plot.
