Question
I have a column of cells that i cannot get the left side to have a border line.  I have deleted the cell,and tried on the next one, played with margins, played with different border option but still i need the left side of the column to have a border line.. help!!

Answer
Rachel:

That sounds like something that might be spreadsheet specific (ie, as you have clearly indicated, it should be fairly simple since you know the steps).  I'm wondering if you have a minor corruption in the file.

Can you email your spreadsheet to me at Lotus@swbell.net and I will review?  Please let me know which cell needs the left border.

Afterwards, I'll speculate further on the cause of the problem.
