Default Left border from Word table is missing.

I’ve changed the formatting on some Word tables and I've noticed that the left border of the tables is missing and I can’t seem to fix it. I know the border is there because you can see it in Web layout, but I can’t see how to make it show up in Print Layout even if I delete table columns.

Without actually seeing the problem table, it can be difficult for anyone to diagnose the issue. Can you attach a document to a post with a representative table (delete anything sensitive)? You do this via the paperclip symbol on the 'Go Advanced' tab at the bottom of this screen.

It seems the table is spilling off the sides past the margins.

Try....

Select the table >> Right Click >> AutoFit >> AutoFit to Window

I didn't have any trouble seeing your tables' left borders in the documents as supplied. Perhaps you have a display driver issue that updating would resolve without the need to reformat your tables.
