In the past i have used word to put a thick border round a table but i have forgot how to do it. I normally use the table on the insert tab and make 1 square , i then use to right click the square to put a border round it with the box and border function but for some reason i cant seem to make this happen.

At the moment i have had to open a previous item and remove the text and resave it as an empty box.

There are a couple ways, but the way I usually do it:
  1. Insert the table.
  2. Highlight all of the table.
  3. Go to Table Design > Borders > Borders and Shading...
  4. Set width / color / style of border.
  5. Use your mouse to click on the borders on the right preview you want to change to the new border style.
