Are you talking about around the whole page?
If so, the way I make different borders, is to cheat, and insert the shape that you want around the edge of your page in as a footer.
That way you can't mess with it while you're typing and you can play with the colours/line thickness all you like because it's just a shape. Hooray!
There are squares with rounded edges in Basic Shapes if that's what you were after.

All you have to do is insert a Footer.
(If you don't know how to do that. You can learn here.)
While still in the Header/Footer design tab click Insert, then Shape.
Draw the shape as big as your whole page so it makes a border.
Then just click Close Header and Footer on the right of your little ribbon..
TAA DAA. A cheaters border
If you want to fix it later, just double click around where the footer is and it will allow you to edit it.

If you were talking about text boxes, you can always just add text to any shape you like.

Hope this helps!

Oh, dude.

I just read further down that you are trying to create a table with round edges.... Eeep!
Unfortunately, there is no way of doing that normally.
What you are doing is pretty much how it rolls. Boo.

But. You can just use the round-cornered square shape that can be found in Word, and plant it behind your table by right clicking it, and changing it's order to the back. No one will ever know...

I think it would look best if you turned the outside borders off your table first

Sorry... that is a pretty lame solution. T.T

Hope it looks spiffy!

that is a possiblity if the shapes will snap into place of the table. As the spacing of the squares has to be accurate.

I have tried to import the file into illustrator cs4; however, the text can only be selcted one word at a time.

Can i save the file in word to be compatible with illustrator .

I guess I can't really fix it unless I see what you are doing

If you just pasted a whole heap of boxes over the existing borders, grouped those shapes, then hid the table borders... I can't see how that wouldn't work.
