You must specify either ColorIndex or Color, but not both.

You can specify either LineStyle or Weight, but not both. If you don't specify either argument, Microsoft Excel uses the default line style and weight.

This method outlines the entire range without filling it in. To set the borders of all the cells, you must set the Color, LineStyle, and Weight properties for the Borders collection. To clear the border, you must set the LineStyle property to xlLineStyleNone for all the cells in the range.
