Through JavaScript I'm able to define the borde style of a <td>-tag by using:
document.getElementById('IDName').style.border = "dashed #123456";

But how do I set the style so that the cell only has a bottom-broder through the use og JavaScript? I've tried the following which gives me an error (Member not found):
document.getElementById('IDName').style = "border-bottom: dashed #123456;";

Here is the html code I would use to give the cell a bottom borser only:
<TD ID='IDName' style='border-bottom-color:#454545; border-bottom-style:dotted;'>

In JavaScript, whenever a style attribute has a hyphen in it, you convert it into camelCase to get the JavaScript property. So, in your case, the "border-bottom" attribute in CSS is called "borderBottom" in JavaScript.

I've placed a version of your code repaired down below.
document.getElementById('IDName').style.borderBottom = "1px dotted #454545";
