Need to remove bottom border of cell within a table

Inside a table in Word 2003, I want to remove a cell's bottom border, which I do. However, it still shows because it's really the top border of the cell beneath. Is there any way to override this somehow and really make the visible line under the cell disappear?

I don't really want to create another row because this is a text entry form for clients and I want spacing between text entry lines (bottom borders of cells) to be equal thickness.

To get rid of the line just select the lower cell and go to:
format - borders and shading and select - none.

If you want a line above your text on the lower cell that wont look like the line belongs to the upper cell do this:
remove all lines for both cells as described above. Select the lower cell and go to format - borders and shading - on the drop down for 'Apply to' select paragraph. Then apply a line above the text on the preview (click top box to the left of the preview). then go ok.

The cells beneath are not the same width, so your suggestion can't work in this case, correct?

yes they can. It will put a neat line above the text on the lower cell that won't look like it belongs to the upper cell.
