Worksheet Borders

Recommended Posts

I have a worksheet which im wanting to show with an outline to the perimeter only.

Have gone into the format cells dialog and unticked "inside". Then ticked "outside".

In the review it appears how I want it to.

As soon as I exit thou every cell has a border.

What am I missing?

You would be correct if you weren't in the database portion of the worksheet.


In a data base, any border you put in one cell you do to all database subrow cells in that column.


You need to put a right border on the right column, a left border on the left column, a bottom border on the row above and a top border on the row below.

Thanks for that Michael, did the above and achieved what i'm after.

For anyone else it would probably also pay to note that the line style needs to be set to none in the Attributes palette.

I left mine as solid black and every cell still showed up with a border.

It was only once I changed the line type to none that only the outline showed up.

The outline around the entire worksheet is controlled by the object attributes, like any other VW object.  Same with the fill.


The grey lines are turned on and off in worksheet preferences.


You can make the cell border line style be anything you want in cell formatting.
