COLUMN BORDER ISSUE


W

William

I want to put a double border around a range of cells (A1:G20). I can get
the double border to show up around the top, bottom, and right borders of
this range, but not the left.

I've tried using the draw Borders/Draw Borders tool, and I've tried
selecting the range manually and then Format/Cells/Select the Dbl Border in
Style and then apply to all four borders. In this dialog box the borders
look correct, but when I go back to the document that left border of the A
cell is not there.

I have tried the same technique - Format/Cells/Select the Dbl Border, etc.
in a ANOTHER file and this works. I can also select a range of cells within
the problem file and this technique works. It's only when I try to put the
dbl border on the left side of cells in column A that this does not work.

Ideas?

Thanks, William

Because you are at left edge of worksheet, perhaps you just can't see the
double border? Is it visible when you print/ go to print preview?

No, it does not show in print preview nor does it print. It does show in the
Format/Cells dialog window.

One other thing I tried was inserting a column before column A, then adding
the dbl line border to the left side of column B (my original column A), and
then deleting the new column A. Unfortunately, the dbl border on the left of
column B goes away with new column A when column A is deleted.
