I have a shape which starts off as

oBlock1.ShapeStyle = msoShapeStylePreset23

I want to programmatically make that have a Thick Black Border, but without altering the Fill Style of light blue.

When I do that with
oBlock1.ShapeStyle = msoShapeStylePreset1
The Fill Style changes to White :(

How can I only alter the Border?

Thanks experts!

Hi,

Since the Stylepresets are pre-set

pls try

    oBlock1.ShapeStyle = msoShapeStylePreset23
    oBlock1.Line.Weight = 3
    oBlock1.Line.ForeColor.RGB = vbBlack

Open in new window

Regards
