Word tables formatting cells

I made some Word tables back in 2004 and some of the cells had special markings: a series of horizontal lines in the cell. (See picture).

I am now using Word 2010 and I cannot find out how to erase those lines or put them in other cells.

Are the lines something that worked with Word 2003?

Select the cell - on the design ribbon click on the drop-down next to borders, go to Borders and shading at the very bottom. Click the shading tab.Under Patterns, click the drop down on style  and scroll down - lt horizontal ?

A perfect solution. I wonder if MS knows how complicated life when the "simplified" Word in its version 2010.

You made my day. Many, many thanks.
