This is related to solved question https://www.experts-exchange.com/questions/28962735/Make-sub-to-format-and-total-ranges.html

For convenience, I'm attaching the same .xlsx files.

Add bottom borders under 2 total rows
I'd like to add bottom borders on the last 2 rows of each group as shown. I tried to change the code here but it just underlines the first cell of the 2nd row. I'd like to underline that whole row and the cells directly above that.

Add bottom borders under 2 total rows WRONG
Sub AddGroupAndTotalsAndUnderlines()
'
' Run after SeparateGroups
' Put BM's name on bolded line, and add bolded totals for each group.
' Also underline totals. It doesn't work correctly. Just 1 cell is underlined.
'

Dim rng As Range
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
For Each rng In Range("A:A").SpecialCells(xlCellTypeConstants, 2).Areas
    If rng.Cells(1).Row <> 1 Then
        rng.Cells(1).Copy rng.Cells(1).Offset(-1, 2)
        With rng.Cells(1).Offset(-1, 2).Font
            .Bold = True
            .Size = 14
            .Name = "Calibri"
        End With
        rng.Cells(rng.Rows.Count + 1).Offset(0, 5).Resize(, 8).FormulaR1C1 = "=SUM(R[-" & rng.Rows.Count & "]C:R[-1]C)"
        rng.Cells(rng.Rows.Count + 1).Offset(0, 5).Resize(, 8).Font.Bold = True
        With rng.Cells(rng.Rows.Count + 1).Offset(0, 5).Borders(xlEdgeBottom)
            .LineStyle = xlContinuous
            .ColorIndex = 0
            .TintAndShade = 0
            .Weight = xlThin
        End With
    End If
Next rng
Application.ScreenUpdating = True
End Sub

For my edification, I'd appreciate also an explanation of my error and how you fixed it. 8-)

Change this line:
With rng.Cells(rng.Rows.Count + 1).Offset(0, 5).Borders(xlEdgeBottom)

to this:
With rng.Cells(rng.Rows.Count + 1).Offset(0, 5).Resize(, 8).Borders(xlEdgeBottom)
