Dwayne,

The grid that displays is a background drawing reference only and cannot be
printed. The only way I know to print a "grid" is to create the grid using array
then print it.

Dwayne.

You can do both of those things. Keith suggested the Array tool, which I agree
with. Create a rectangle with the grid dimensions you need. Use the 2D
Coordinate box for that. Start drawing the rectangle and type and the dialog
box will appear. Type the grid values in (use tab to toggle) and hit Enter.
Close with a Snap. Select the rectangle and choose the Rectangular Array tool.
Put in the appropriate values and you got it.

To make points, you'll have to use small circles, and then the Rectangular Array
tool. Same as above.
