How can I get my data driven pages to view correctly?

I am trying to get only the data within each block to view. Also, the grid seems jagged. I'd like to straighten things out and make it look more neat. Any suggestions?

For your first, question, you're going to want to use the clipping functions available in the Data Frame Properties, all the way down the page on the resource center link.  Go to View > Data Frame Properties > Data Frame > Clipping Options and set the clipping options to the data driven pages extent.  Then, if you'd like to exclude any layers from the clip, (for example you had imagery in your map and you wanted to display it beyond the boundaries of the index polygon while clipping everything else, you'd exclude the layer from the clip).  Set the border to a line to distinguish the polygon.  Can you upload a shapefile of your grid features?

Thanks for that! I spent far too long looking in the wrong the spot! I appreciate it!

I don't know that I can... I check later though.
