I assume you have checked the Heading 6 style itself to be sure that
borders are not turned on. I would then run the macro and see if (on the
Formatting toolbar) borders *gets* turned on. If that's not the problem, I
would change the settings in Heading 6, save the style with the new
settings, and then change the style back to its original settings and save
it. With so many bugs in Word, it's likely that there's no explanation and
that you can trick the program to behave properly by altering the style and
then restoring it to the settings you want. Then recreate your macro and
see if you've fooled the program.
