Hi, don't try to style the row (tr), just apply the style to the table and/or the TDs, e.g. try this:


<table style="border-collapse:collapse;" >     
<tr>
<td style="border-bottom:thick solid black;" >Incident</td>
<td style="border-bottom:thick solid black;" >Assign To</td>
<td style="border-bottom:thick solid black;" >Effective Date</td>
<td style="border-bottom:thick solid black;" >Date Assigned</td>
</tr>
</table>

(or give those TDs a class and apply the style to that class..)

This should be what you want.  You have to apply borders to the cells, not the rows
