Default Formatting a table with double borders

Hi,

I'm trying to make a table with column that has its cells double bordered.



The cells of one column will be filled with a color, have a border of white around them. The whole table will have horizontal colored lines going through it.

attached is an example on slide 4 of this slide pack, i can not for the life of my get it to format. I'm hoping I don't have to draw the formatting I want!

thanks

I don't think there's a good way to do this.

You could try making in WORD where double borders are allowed and copy pasting into PowerPoint. You should get double borders but it will probably not look correct

Default Extra rows

You could add extra rows above and below your coloured square, with very small font and no top/bottom borders, and add the black lines to those white rows? See attached ppt.
