It's easy to put an elegant border around your page--but then the printer lops it off.Why? Each printer has its own minimum margin setting, and if you put any text or borders outside that margin setting, your page won't print correctly.Word, on the other hand, will let you set your margins to 0.How do you find out your printer's printable area--before you print?You use WordPad. A colleague showed me how:
1. In Windows, click the Start button.
2. Click All Programs.
3. Click Accessories.
4. Click WordPad.
5. In WordPad, click the WordPad tab.
6. Click Page Setup.
7. In each margin box, type 0. (After you change the last margin, click in a different box.)
8. WordPad displays the minimum margins that you need to apply to your Word document.
Now you can open your document in Word, click the Page Layout Dialog Box Launcher, click the Margins tab, and then type in those minimum margin settings.

Is there a way to put a border around selected text that begins in the middle of one page and ends somewhere in the next page? I have tried to do this without success.
I keep getting the debug error when I try to use an excel application with macros, it works just fine on other computers.
Thanks for the tip Joannie, very helpful.
That's a hard one. I tried doing it with a text box and with a single-cell table, but I haven't gotten it to work (although, keep in mind that the border probably won't print all the way to the bottom and top edges of the page anyway).
Anyone out there have a trick to make this work?
The best place to get answers to Excel problems is the Excel blog: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/excel/.
I tried this, but the bottom line of the page border still does not print even though I've made my margins larger than what wordpad showed the minimum numbers to be. Any other thoughts on how I can get the bottom line of the page border to print?
I don't--not if the border is showing up in Print Preview.
Anyone else have some ideas for Joanne to try? (Short of trying ever larger margins and wasting a bunch of printouts trying to get it right.)
Another idea is to try http://answers.microsoft.com.
Didnt work for me.
I couldn't get the bottom border to print completely either and changing the margins didn't help. What now?
I can't get the bottom border to print either, it,s coming close to fix this comp. w/hammer!
I've found a few more resources for this at word.mvps.org/.../BottomsDontPrint.htm and at social.answers.microsoft.com/.../en-us.
HOW TO PRINT THE BOTTOM BORDER IN WORD?(which always disappears when printing)
to print the bottom border,
go to wordpad, page setup. there, set the bottom margin to 0. Then open ur doc in MS word and set your border like you want. then, goto page layout, page borders,Options and set the bottom border to 0 and change the dropdown to " from text". finally go to the print setup. there, change the page size to Letter(even if you are printing in an A4 page) and set the margins to normal....Thats it. now print the doc.
This has always worked for me, and i'm sure it will work for you too.
Hi I'm trying to print a boarder on 4 pages to one sheet, but for some reason the boarder prints in a quater of each page printed...I end up with 4 pages on one sheet with little boarders in the left hand side of each print. I have done this before on my old computer but just can't find how to do it now!!!!
Why doesn't Microsoft change Word to increase the measurement of borders from the edge of the page so the bottom border will print?
