How to Remove Lines From a Word 2007 Table

Once you create a table in Microsoft Word 2007, you can format it any way you like. Word 2007 has pre-built table styles you can use, or you can customize your own with borders and shading. The default table style uses outlines around the entire table, as well as in between each cell. However, if you don’t like the lines, you can remove them.
