Folks,
I am looking for a way to add borders around all cells using VBA for the range K3:L13. What I tried below doesn't seem to even give me the bottom edge.

Range("K3:L13").Borders(xlEdgeBottom).LineStyle = XlLineStyle.xlContinuous

Set myrange = Range("K13:L13")
    myrange.Borders(xlDiagonalDown).LineStyle = xlNone
    myrange.Borders(xlDiagonalUp).LineStyle = xlNone
    With myrange.Borders(xlEdgeLeft)

If you can do it by hand, record a macro while you are doing it.

When working with multiple rows at the same time you have to set the inside horizontal border:

Range("K3:L13").Borders(xlEdgeBottom).LineStyle = XlLineStyle.xlContinuous
Range("K3:L13").Borders(xlInsideHorizontal).LineStyle = XlLineStyle.xlContinuous

Here is an elegant method for setting the borders around all individual cells in a multiple cell range:

   Dim BorderIndex As Variant
   For Each BorderIndex In Array(xlEdgeTop, xlEdgeLeft, xlEdgeBottom, xlEdgeRight, xlInsideHorizontal, xlInsideVertical)
      With TargetRange.Borders(BorderIndex)
         .Weight = xlThin
         .ColorIndex = xlAutomatic
      End With
   Next BorderIndex

In your case replace TargetRange with Range("K3:L13").

Folks,
I wrote this and it worked! Surprised even myself.

Dim rng As Range
    Set rng = Range("K3:L13")
    With rng.Borders
        .LineStyle = xlContinuous
        .Color = vbBlack
        .Weight = xlThin
    End With

In fairness to all I'll distribute the points the points equally. I appreciate your response
