Chapter 7. Creating and Inserting Tables > Manually Setting Borders and Shading

Manually Setting Borders and Shading

Borders are lines surrounding the cells. Shading is fill within the cells. Word has a collection of templates for borders and shading that you can choose from and apply quickly to a table using Table AutoFormat in the Table menu. You can also set each detail manually.

To manually set borders and shading:

1.
Select the cells for which you want to modify the borders or add shading.

2.
In the Tables and Borders toolbar, select a line weight and style from the pull-down menus (Figure 7.30).

Click the Border button, and choose from the pop-up palette to apply a border to the top, bottom, left, right, inside, or outside of the selected cells (Figure 7.31).

When you've finished applying borders and shading, your table is ready to go (Figure 7.32).
