"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

The quickest way I can think to do this is to insert a single cell table and adjust the margins to fill out the edges...

Or you could use a paragraph border. Click on the Borders symbol (bottom right in the Paragraph group). Choose the 'Borders and Shading' item. You can select the colour and style on the dialogue that then opens.

I have tried all of the suggestions and all seem to work ok except for the fact that the bottom text box or single cell table (whichever I try) does not fully extend horizontally across the bottom of the page or all the way to the bottom of the page.   It seems to be ok before I preview and/or print.  Thanks for all of your help.

It might be that your printer can't print to the edge of the page. See what happens if you print to PDF.

Thank you all for your help.  It could be the printer since the footer is fully colored; however, the printout shows space on the sides - but you all have been a big help.  Thanks again.
