Borders object (Word)
A collection of Border objects that represent the borders of an object.
Use the Borders property to return the Borders collection. The following example applies the default border around the first paragraph in the active document.
ActiveDocument.Paragraphs(1).Borders.Enable = True
Border objects cannot be added to the Borders collection. The number of members in the Borders collection is finite and varies depending on the type of object. For example, a table has six elements in the Borders collection, whereas a paragraph has four.
Use Borders (index), where index identifies the border, to return a single Border object. Index can be one of the WdBorderType constants. Some of the WdBorderType constants may not be available to you, depending on the language support (U.S. English, for example) that you have selected or installed.
Use the LineStyle property to apply a border line to a Border object. The following example applies a double-line border below the first paragraph in the active document.
With ActiveDocument.Paragraphs(1).Borders(wdBorderBottom) .LineStyle = wdLineStyleDouble .LineWidth = wdLineWidth025pt End With
The following example applies a single-line border around the first character in the selection.
With Selection.Characters(1) .Font.Size = 36 .Borders.Enable = True End With
The following example adds an art border around each page in the first section.
For Each aBorder In ActiveDocument.Sections(1).Borders With aBorder .ArtStyle = wdArtSeattle .ArtWidth = 20 End With Next aBorder
