I can't see your attachment, but I suggest that you higlight the row,
right-click it, and select Custom Ruling & Shading. I'm willing to bet
that there's an Outside Edge set with a custom cell ruling. Or maybe
the row above/below--I find it hard to tell where FM thinks such
customizations are applied and so I usually have to 'circle around' the
offedning ruling.

Alternately, select the whole table, right-click and choose Custom
Ruling and Shading, check all of the check boxes, and set Apply Ruling
Style and Custom Cell Shading to From Table (in essence,removing any
custom overrides that might have existed). THEN, pray your table
template is good. :)

I am working on a federal doc, and the technician has an appendix with
many tables. In several of the tables, inside some of the rows (shaded
grey) there is a white underscore of sorts that runs the length of the
row. I have inspected the font, paragraph, table design, and cannot
for the life of me figure out what is causing it. See attached. Based
on my inspection, the row in question is a single row, not anything
merged. In the attached snipet, please see the row with text
Assessment Objective.
