Use borders and shading to enhance the appearance of the document. Borders and shading can be applied to an entire page or columns of text or cells. Borders and shading may also be applied to individual paragraphs throughout the document.
It is also possible to apply page borders and shading to the current page, pages from a certain point onwards, or the entire document. These criteria should be established in the Page Setup dialog under Scope. If the scope is not defined, borders and shading are applied to the whole document by default.
