Default Page-crossing borders in a table with hidden between-cell borders

I have a column in a table in my Word file which consists of multiple rows, each row containing a numbered points. (there are two columns with corresponding numbered list). I don't want to have border between the different rows, but I do want to have the border when the table is changing page within the same cell.

This is what I currently have. There's no border between number 3 and 4 (which is good), but I do want border when the cell is going to the next page. So if everything works out, there would be a horizontal line below "the Committee has specifically" and above "addressed as being."

I would much appreciate any help/

I tried it on my PC. As soon as the table crossed the page, it automatically applies the border.

Have you tried reapplying the table borders? You seem to have done it, as per the picture you uploaded, but no harm trying again. Cannot think of any reason why it should not happen in your document.

You seem to be having some page footer text also. Is that correct? Could that be interfering with the display of the table borders?

Hi tenpaiman,

Provided your table has a bottom border, which the dialogue in your screenshot suggests it should, any cell that is split across a page break will acquire a top & bottom border at the page break.
