If you are talking about the background grid lines that are shown on the entire spreadsheet you will first need to disable that feature. Tools > Options View Tabs, uncheck the box labled 'grid lines'. This will remove all gridlines. You will then need to add borders to the entire spreadsheet in order to remove them from the ones you don't want to have the gridlines. Assuming you have removed the background grid lines you need to 'select' all of the cells for the spreadsheet that you want. Once they are all highlighted go to: Format > Cells Borders. Click the 4 sides and then the middle both horizontal and vertical. This will produce 'gridlines' for your spreadsheet and the ability to remove them from the selected cells.

To remove gridlines(borders) from the selected cells select the cells you want to remove the grid lines from and then go to Format>Cells borders. Simply uncheck all of the lines. There is also a toolbar on the menu that shows the various border options. You can also use this to 'un-border' the selected cells.
