Friends,

I need to put a border around each individual cell that I am including in a spreadsheet      The Range includes A1 through O22

So, I guess what I'm asking is what would the property setting (syntax) be?

Here is my code that accompanies it:

 With oSheet.Range("A1", "O" & NumberOfCarsInRace + 3)

            .VerticalAlignment = excel.XlVAlign.xlVAlignCenter
            .HorizontalAlignment = excel.XlHAlign.xlHAlignCenter

            '.Borders.Application.????????????????

         .VerticalAlignment = excel.XlVAlign.xlVAlignCenter
         .HorizontalAlignment = excel.XlHAlign.xlHAlignCenter

    With .Borders(xlEdgeLeft)
        .LineStyle = xlContinuous
        .Weight = xlThin
        .ColorIndex = xlAutomatic
    End With
    With .Borders(xlEdgeTop)

I'm getting errors with the xl* items.  Is there something I need to declare that I'm not?

I now see that you are in VB.net.

as I don't have VB.net handy, you will have to find the correct syntax, it will be similar to this:
xlContinuous  should be excel.XlLineStyle.xlLineStyleContinuous
etc

??? Actually, I need help with that.  

As you said excel.XlLineStyle.xlLineStyleContinuous works, but I can't make the

With .Borders(xlEdgeBottom) work.

xlEdgeBottom - > excel.XlBordersIndex.xlEdgeBottom
xlThin -> excel.XlBorderWeight.xlThin
xlAutomatic ->  Excel.XlColorIndex.xlColorIndexAutomatic

AngelIII,

Okay, that compiled, thanks for that; however, it puts a border around the whole set rather than each cell as I requested.  Any other suggestions?

indeed, I forgot to copy 2 blocks:

    With .Borders(excel.XlBordersIndex.xlInsideVertical)
        .LineStyle = excel.XlLineStyle.xlContinuous
        .Weight = excel.XlBorderWeight.xlThin
        .ColorIndex = Excel.XlColorIndex.xlAutomatic
    End With
    With .Borders(excel.XlBordersIndex.xlInsideHorizontal)
        .LineStyle = excel.XlLineStyle.xlContinuous
        .Weight = excel.XlBorderWeight.xlThin
        .ColorIndex = Excel.XlColorIndex.xlAutomatic
    End With
