How to add horizontal borders only in specific range in Excel?
Normally, we can easily add Bottom border and Top border for selected range easily with clicking the corresponding Border button on the Home tab as below screen shot shown. However, sometimes you need to add all horizontal borders to range, including horizontal middle line, how could you solve it? Here I will introduce a couple of ways to add horizontal borders only in a specific range in Excel.
Add horizontal borders only with Fill Handle in Excel
Before entering contents into cells, you can add top border and bottom border for the first row in the specific range, and then apply this row's format to other rows with Fill Handle in Excel. And you can do as follows:
1. Select the first row in the specific range where you will add horizontal borders only.
2. Add Top and Bottom border with clicking the arrow besides Border button > Top and Bottom Border on the Home tab.
3. Move mouse to the bottom-right corner of selected row, when the cursor changes to a cross, drag the Fill handle to the rows you want to apply Top and Bottom border.
Then you will see only horizontal borders are added in the specific range in Excel, see below screen shot:
Note: This method works well in a blank range. If there have already been contents in the range, this method will clear original contents and fill with content of first row.
