Excel VBA Best way to get border information of a cell

Hi. I need to get information about the border formatting of a cell.
I am using the following code that gets the following results, which is
very different to the information in the macro recorder when
I initially formatted the cell (shown at the bottom)
L = 1
C = -4105
W = 2

Dim L, C, W As String
    L = Selection.Borders(xlEdgeTop).LineStyle
    C = Selection.Borders(xlEdgeTop).ColorIndex
    W = Selection.Borders(xlEdgeTop).Weight
       MsgBox W


    With Selection.Borders(xlEdgeTop)
        .LineStyle = xlContinuous
        .ColorIndex = 0
        .TintAndShade = 0
        .Weight = xlThin
    End With
0

Actually, xlContinuous is just an excel constant with a value of 1, xlThin has a value of 2, and the colorindex -4105 and 0 are the same color, so you are getting what you're putting in, even though it doesn't necessarily feel like it.
