To insert a current date line in cell, you can apply the Conditional Formatting function.

1. Select the range you want to insert line, and click Home > Conditional Formatting > New Rule. See screenshot:
doc insert line by current date 2

2. In the New Formatting Rule dialog, select Use a formula to determine which cells to format, and type this formula =IF(B$1=TODAY(),TRUE, FALSE) to the Format values where this formula is true text box. Click Format to go to the Format Cells dialog, under Border tab, specify the line as you need. See screenshot:
