expression.LineStyle

expression Required. An expression that returns a Border object.

Remarks

Setting the LineStyle property for a range that refers to individual characters or words applies a character border.

Setting the LineStyle property for a paragraph or range of paragraphs applies a paragraph border. Use the InsideLineStyle property to apply a border between consecutive paragraphs.

Setting the LineStyle property for a section applies a page border around the pages in the section.

Example

If the selection is a paragraph or a collapsed selection, this example adds a single 0.75-point paragraph border above the selection. If the selection doesn't include a paragraph, a border is applied around the selected text.

With Selection.Borders(wdBorderTop)
    .LineStyle = wdLineStyleSingle
    .LineWidth = wdLineWidth075pt
End With
		

This example adds a double 1.5-point border below each frame in the active document.

For Each aFrame In ActiveDocument.Frames
    With aFrame.Borders(wdBorderBottom)
        .LineStyle = wdLineStyleDouble
        .LineWidth = wdLineWidth150pt
    End With
Next aFrame
		

The following example applies a border around the fourth word in the active document. Applying a single border (in this example, a top border) to text applies a border around the text.

ActiveDocument.Words(4).Borders(wdBorderTop) _
    .LineStyle = wdLineStyleSingle
