Hi

Is it possible with the ASP.net table control to format the bottom of a cell
with a double line as you would in Excel using the following code?

Selection.Borders(xlEdgeBottom).LineStyle = xlDouble

You can do it with CSS with something like;
td { border-bottom: double 2px black; }

Thanks. I am a VB.net coder. Is there no way to do this with VB.net? If not, how do I manipulate the CSS you mentioned in a VB.net project?

The asp:Table control only lets you specify the border for the whole cell, not each individual side of the cell. To do it you need to use CSS.

Add the style into your pages head section and then set the CssClass property on each relevant cell:
<!DOCTYPE html>

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head runat="server">
    <style type="text/css">
        td.double-underline { border-bottom: double 2px black; }
    </style>
    <title></title>
</head>
<body>

    <form id="form1" runat="server">
    <div>
        <asp:Table>
            <asp:TableRow>
                <asp:TableCell CssClass="double-underline">Some content</asp:TableCell>
            </asp:TableRow>
        </asp:Table>
    </div>
    </form>

</body>
</html>
