    Getting rid of all table borders (2000)

    I'm just using a table to format some text. After it's formatted, I want to get rid of all the borders. If I try turning off borders in "borders and shading...", I'm still left with a faint gray borders. How do I hide them completely?

    Thanks...

    You probably mean the gridlines that are only displayed on screen, not printed. You can toggle them off/on in the Table menu, but hiding them can be confusing, since you don't have any indication any more that there is a table in the document.

    If these borders appear on screen, but not in the printed version, then they are called "gridlines". You can stop them displaying (for all tables in all documents) by selecting Hide Gridlines on the Table menu.

    I'm using W2003, but I imagine there is a similar feature in 2000. Select the entire table table and then click on Table>Convert>Table to text.

    Its pretty helpful sometimes to toggle to 'Print Preview' View - (CTRL + F2) so see the document as it would be without the foramtting marks such as table gridllines text boundaries, paragraph markers etc.
    This way you can work on a document being aware of all formatting etc, but quickly switch to check it will appear as you desire.
    Thanks,
