A reader sent me a Word document that's comprised of multiple tables formatted to look like a paper form. He used a table to insert labels and used the border to create underscores. Name ____________________________ Where Name and the underscore are two cells in the same row of a table. When applying the Bottom Border attribute to some of the cells, Word applies the underscore to all of the cells in the row, instead of only the selected cell. All of the cells look exactly the same. I even used Format Painter to format the culprit cells using a good cell. Eventually, I was able to work around it, by splitting, underscoring, and then merging the culprit cells back to a single. But, that shouldn't be necessary and I'd like to know what caused this. Has anyone run into this before and resolved it rather than skirting around it? Thanks! Susan H.
