2.
Choose Format > Borders and Shading.

The Borders and Shading dialog box appears.

3.
Under the Borders tab, select the type of border you would like to use: None, Box, Shadow, 3-D, or Custom (Figure 5.11).

Figure 5.11. In the Borders and Shading dialog box, under the Borders tab in the Setting pane, select None, Box, Shadow, 3-D, or Custom.


You can also select the color and width of the border.

or

Under the Shading tab, select the color for the shading under Fill and the pattern style under Patterns (Figure 5.12).
