I did a lot of searching through the archives and Blue Sky's web site, but
I haven't found an answer on how to put borders in tables. When I try to
compile, I get the error "table formatting too complex".

In the Winhelp archives, I saw one possible solution:

<Nina Eppes>
1. Create a paragraph style (I call mine "Table Rule") with the
following attributes:
Line Spacing Exactly 2 pt
Border: Bottom (Single)
Border Spacing: 1 pt

2. Where you want a border or rule in your table, create an empty row,
select it, and merge the cells (Table -> Merge Cells).
</Nina Eppes>

This works for rows, but not for columns.

Does anyone have some magical solution to this border-in-tables problem?

I'm creating Win 3.1* help files with Word 7, Robohelp 4.

Thanks very much.
