Go to the Tools menu > AutoCorrect Options... and select the AutoFormat As You Type tab. Uncheck the box next to Border lines in the "Apply as you type" section.
You can save this option in your Normal.dot, in your templates, in your styles.
And if by any chance you happen to bump into this feature in a document (may be one of those you had saved earlier), at just the moment the underscores turn into a border line, hover your mouse over that line and a smart tag called AutoCorrect Options button (it looks like a small yellow lightning) will appear.
By pressing on this button you can either undo that specific automated conversion of the underscores into a border line, or you can also set the Word never to repeat that same behavior.
The thing that makes removing these lines seem impossible is the fact that they are not lines (i.e. objects) which can be selected and deleted, but they are border lines. That is, if one allows this AutoFormat option, then what is actually added is not a line in the document, but a border that is marked by a line.
The way for a border line to be removed is to select the line just above it (it could be an empty line or have text) and then go to the Format menu > Borders and Shading > Borders tab > select the None box... and the border line disappears.
I am working on template building for one my reports and i have this issue that i cannot get around. on table "current week", i select the entire first row ( not the header ) and insert a new record below it ( by double clicking on any of the cells of the row->right click-->insert-->rows below).
i find cells Occupancy,yeild,sleeper/breakfast behaving differently than rest of the cells by having a border between rows.my report requires these lines to be removed.I tried everything i could think of including copying existing cells,formatting cell borders etc.,. but none worked. any tips to resove this issue is greatly appreciated. i have attached the template for your reference. thanks in advance
