Have an excel question (version 2010) as follows. For example, 2 columns and 7 rows

         A     B
1      Key  Value
2      D1   10
3              20
4      E1    11
5              21
6              31
7      F1    22
would like to draw the border (all solid lines around the cells, only draw the bottom lines as an example), but if there are no values in column A, do not draw anything, simply take the defaults.

         A     B
1      Key  Value
    --------------------
2     D1   10
3             20
    --------------------
4     E1    11
5             21
6             31
    --------------------
7     F1   22
    --------------------

Wrote something like this

Sub T()

With Range("A1:B" & Range("B" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row).Borders
    .LineStyle = xlContinuous
    .Weight = xlThin
    .ColorIndex = xlAutomatic
End With
End Sub

How to add the check cell condition statement?

You might try a macro like this:
Sub T()
Dim rw As Range
With Range("A1:B" & Range("B" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row)
    With .Borders
        .LineStyle = xlOutline
        .Weight = xlThin
        .ColorIndex = xlAutomatic
    End With
    .Borders(xlInsideHorizontal).LineStyle = xlNone
    .Borders(xlInsideVertical).LineStyle = xlNone
    For Each rw In .Rows
        If rw.Cells(2, 1).Value <> "" Then
            With rw.Borders(xlEdgeBottom)
                .LineStyle = xlDash
            End With
        End If
    Next
End With
End Sub
