Adding Borders to a Table

Word's default is to place a single, thin border around each cell in a table. You can modify the borders or remove them altogether. The techniques for working with table borders are essentially the same as for adding borders to other text (see Lesson 10, "Changing the Appearance of Text" ). Briefly, here are the steps involved:

  1. Select the table cells whose borders you want to modify.

  2. Select Format, Borders and Shading to display the Borders and Shading dialog box. Click the Borders tab if necessary (see Figure 20.4).

  3. Select the desired border settings, using the Preview box to see how your settings will appear.

  4. Click OK.
