2.00 2.00a 2.00a-CD 2.00b 2.00c


The information in this article applies to:
- Microsoft Word for Windows, versions 2.0, 2.0a, 2.0a-CD, 2.0b, 2.0c - Microsoft Windows operating system versions 3.0 and 3.1


The Border command on the Format menu is unavailable (dimmed) if you create a table, delete the last cell in the top or bottom row, and then select the last column using the Select Column command on the Table menu.

The Border command remains available:

  • If you do not select the end-of-cell marker for the row in which you deleted a cell.


  • If you delete cells from rows other than the top or bottom row or from columns other than the last column.


  • Do not use the Select Column command or the right mouse button to select such columns when you want to apply border formatting. Instead, use the mouse or keyboard to select the cells in the column.


  • Select the column manually with the mouse. Do not select the end-of-cell marker for the shorter row.
