hi
I've got a customer with the following scenario..they have a spreadsheet with single lines on internal borders, and double lines on external borders.
They add new data and copy down the border information - the new single line border overwrites the external double line border and he has to use Format Painter to recreate the double external line..any suggestions?

Insert a blank row at the bottom of the table and set the height to only a few pts. When new rows are inserted, ensure this row is selected before inserting. When the rows above are then copied/dragged down into the new rows make sure they don't go into the last row, the double border at the bottom will then stay.

Thanks
