    Table- leave gap between adjacent border lines (Word97/Sr2)

    Hi, Loungers -

    Short of creating a narrow blank column, is there a way to make 2 border lines non-contiguous? I played with Space between columns but that didn't work for me; tried left indenting the cell, that didn't work.

    In Borders/Shading, I've chosen Apply to Cell, and Apply to Paragraph. Didn't break the line.

    The maddening thing is I think I have done this before............

    Thank you!

    Do you mean that you want a double vertical line between table columns? That's the Style setting in the Borders tab of the Borders and Shading dialog. Initially, only single borders are visible, but if you scroll the list, you'll see other options.

    If you mean something else, please clarify.

    If you are talking about the borders above/underneath table cells then you can fudge a gap between the adjacent cells by applying a thick white vertical border between the two cells.

    Hans & ANdrew -

    THank you both for your responses.

    I was able to accomplish what I wanted by using Paragraph in Apply to in Border box. I had tried and tried that before I posted but for some reason I didn't take. Today it did.

    I did learn from your suggestions. So again my thanks. Am posting another question re tables.....
