    All borders vanished (2007)

    I have a user running Word 2007. She removed the borders from a table in one document, saved the document. Now she claims (I haven't seen this first hand, but I trust her) that every other document she opens has the borders missing from tables that had and needed borders. I don't know of any command in Word 2007 that would modify all of the files, nor a way to restore them...

    What could have caused this and any suggestions for fixing it?

    If she or I open a document, is there a way to select all tables in a document and apply the a borders condition to them??

    Could it be that a table style was modified? I don't pay much attention to table styles in Word 2003, so I haven't noticed whether direct formatting applied to table styles might redefine them in the document and in the Normal template.

    Make sure that she really means borders. Perhaps she meant table gridlines (which are only a visual help on screen; they aren't printed).
    To display gridlines:
    - Click in any table.
    - Select the Layout tab on the Ribbon.
    - In the Table group, click Show Gridlines.
