Spice Up Your Borders

I'm always surprised at that most Excel users use only the Borders tool on the toolbar and assume that borders are only solid, black, thin lines. In fact, when applying borders to your worksheet there are several options available that you won't find on the Borders tool that allow you to spice up your worksheet.

Select Format, Cells and click the Border tab. You'll see that you can use different colors for your borders - even in the same cell. You can create borders of various thickness. There are several formats of dashed borders to choose from. You can even created diagonal borders.

I've said it many times before, "You've got to do some digging to find all of the goodies that Excel has to offer."
