Bordering in Excell


O

olrjr

I have been working on a spread (text only) sheet and for the life of me I
can't get the borders to cover the few remaining cells that seem to have no
borders. I have tried everything; from trying to cut and past borders, to
using the border tool. No matter what I do, it seems that I can't close the
borders around certain cells. Can someone out there help me with this
problem. It is driving me crazy and I am under a deadline to get this project
completed.

Thanks

if the text overlaps the cell, the right border will disappear. try widening
the problems cells.

One possibility is a forgotten Conditional Format is over-riding the
borders you are applying. Select a stubborn cell and go Format|
Conditional Formatting... to see if this is the cause of the
disappearing borders.
