Description Adam Niedling 2019-06-23 16:16:53 UTC
There will be no inner borders after replaying a recorded macro.

I'm including the whole macro in the Additional Information field.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Record a macro in which you add both outer and inner borders to the selected cells.
2. Save the macro.
3. Replay it.

Actual Results:
There will be only outer borders around the cells.

Expected Results:
There should be inner borders as well.

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

additional observation, if you select different styles for the borders (outer, didn't test inner as they are omitted anyway) the macro applies only on of them ...

pls. look at: 


the OP there found a solution, citation: 1

'The clue I had been missing was the use of the Table2 and Border2 objects rather than the more obvious Table and Border objects.'

recorded macros are often not 'perfect', but a base to build own solutions, together with above solution i'd close as 'wfm' if nobody objects.
