i have a very long spreadsheet and would like to get rid of a DASHED BOLD outline around the cells.


is there some method for getting rid of the dashed bold outline as it runs through 800 rows and i don't want to have to redo all the sections to get rid of it.


i have tried moving the cell - one single DASHED BOLD line still runs vertically through my spreadsheet.


i also tried deleting the remaining DASHED BOLD line but this just deletes the whole line so it looks like two cells are together.


i think i am out of luck with this and have to redo all the formatting in all the sections below is that right?

    Select a column, Click the Format tool, Click Cell, Click Border, Click the line type, Select Solid, Set your weight, Click the orientation of the line relative to the column that is selected.

    Formatting will become easier with practice. I find the sequence of the little dance we do to apply borders is slightly different in Version 3, at least it seems so.
