    How to get below the line (Office 2000)

    Hello,
    I am trying to modify a word document. It was not created by me so I don't know how they created the "lines" [that look like ropes] that break up the sections on the document. I have attached a sample so that you can see what I mean.

    What I'm trying to do is type below the second line and I can't seem to figure out how. I can drag it ..... I can delete it......... but I can't type below it. I don't know what it is. I'm sure this is simple to most of you, but this is the first time I've come across something like this.

    How do I do that? Thanks!

    The rope-like lines are paragraph borders, set in the Format | Borders and Shading dialog. The second line is the border of the very last paragraph in the document, so you cannot type below it. This was no doubt the intention of the person who created the document - the second line is meant as an indication of the end of the document. If you really need to, do the following:
    - Click in the last paragraph of the document.
    - Select Format | Borders and Shading...
    - In the Borders tab, click None, then click OK. The line will be gone.
    - Press Enter one or more times. This will create new paragraphs where you can type.
    - If you want to restore the line, click in the paragraph below which you want the line.
    - Select Format | Borders and Shading...
    - Scroll down the list until you see the "rope", then select it.
    - This will create a border on all four sides of the paragraph.
    - Click the left, right and top borders in the sample box to turn them off.
    - Click OK.
