Think its a limitation in Word. You can do a really picky work-around if you
must have if formatted this way. Place the word inside a text box, then edit
the tesxt box to 0" borders with no lines. Keep the box selected, then apply
a border (from the format menu) above and below the word, or any combination
you wish. Hope that helps

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
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

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?
