    Hi poppins,

    Excel Buffer table have a pre-defined function for same BorderAround.

    This function takes input a range of cells.

    Thanks & Regards,
    Saurav Dhyani

    Do you Know this About NAV?

    try to change the value passed to xlrange1.borderaround instruction. Switch it to 2,3,4 etc. and see the result.
    If this is the property you need, you can:
    a. customize the existing function by adding an additional parameter (i don't recommend this one, as you don't know where's used and where will it be used in the standard nav)
    BorderAround(RangeName : Text[50];BorderStyle : Integer)
    b. create a new function (a copy of borderaround but with the additional parameter
