    Applying colored border to a cell (Win 98SE Office 2000)

    I don't know what I'm missing. To apply a border to a table or cell, select cell(s), click borders button on Standard toolbar; then click the border desired, e.g. outline. Or, select cell(s), go from Format to Cell Formats dialog box and then border tab. Select preset or border desired and line desired. To make the border a different color, use drop-down next to Color and click on choice of color. Then click ok. I must be missing something because when I try to set a border that has spaces in the line (e.g. -----) and/or set the border to red, I get a simple line border in the same color as the rest of the table. I get the same results making a border on a cell or on a table. What am I doing wrong?

    I think you have the order wrong. You say you do this...
    1) Select cell(s)
    2) Format to Cell Formats (Border tab)
    3) Select preset or border desired
    4) Select line desired.
    5) Click on choice of color
    6) Click ok

    Try doing it in this order...
    1) Select cell(s)
    2) Format to Cell Formats (Border tab)
    3) Click on choice of color
    4) Select line desired
    5) Select preset or border desired
    6) Click ok
