What version of Word are you using?

That's the way it's supposed to work (in Word 97 and Word 2000). It's a
four-sided box border or no border at all, according to these knowledge base
articles:

http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;165715

http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;211704

I'm not sure if this feature has been fixed or added in Word 2002.

Hi
I was experimenting with Word when I came across the following problem.

Adding a border to a particular word.

Highlight the word.
Select Format > Borders and Shading. The Borders and Shading window is
displayed.
Select Text from the Apply to drop-down list box.
Select Box from the Setting options.

Perfect! The required word gets the border.
Now, I want a custom border, I only want lines at the top and bottom of the
word.

Select Custom from the Setting options.
Click the required buttons to apply the required borders.

Stunned!!! I have only two options - Border on all four sides or none.

Am I doing something wrong or is it MS Word?

Cheers,
Mayur
