I have a vb app that creates a word application.
I am trying to get rid of the table borders, but they still show up.

How do I get rid of them?

This makes them gray instead of black

    wdTable.Borders(wdBorderTop).LineStyle = wdLineStyleNone
    wdTable.Borders(wdBorderBottom).LineStyle = wdLineStyleNone
    wdTable.Borders(wdBorderLeft).LineStyle = wdLineStyleNone
    wdTable.Borders(wdBorderRight).LineStyle = wdLineStyleNone
    wdTable.Borders(wdBorderHorizontal).LineStyle = wdLineStyleNone
    wdTable.Borders(wdBorderVertical).LineStyle = wdLineStyleNone

With ActiveDocument.Tables(1)
   wdTable.Borders(wdBorderTop).LineStyle = wdLineStyleNone
    wdTable.Borders(wdBorderBottom).LineStyle = wdLineStyleNone
    wdTable.Borders(wdBorderLeft).LineStyle = wdLineStyleNone
    wdTable.Borders(wdBorderRight).LineStyle = wdLineStyleNone
    wdTable.Borders(wdBorderHorizontal).LineStyle = wdLineStyleNone

End With

may be you set the color to white

ie

wdTable.Borders(wdBorderTop).Color = wdColorWhite

Commented:
wdTable.Borders(wdBorderTop).Color = wdColorWhite
    wdTable.Borders(wdBorderBottom).Color = wdColorWhite
    wdTable.Borders(wdBorderLeft).Color = wdColorWhite
    wdTable.Borders(wdBorderRight).Color = wdColorWhite
    wdTable.Borders(wdBorderHorizontal).Color = wdColorWhiteone
    wdTable.Borders(wdBorderVertical).Color = wdColorWhite

and don't set the line style

actually I just printed it out and they did not appear.
I think it is some sort of page markup or something.
Is there a way to turn off showing bookmarks and other things?
