I'm having a really fun/weird glitch with a table and printing. 

 

I've removed borders from the whole page, every part of the table, and cleared all conditional rules within the page and yet my table still insists on having a black border around it. I thought perhaps it was just an outline in the way guidelines are but whenever I save it as a PDF, the border remains.  It also doesn't go away if turn view guidelines off. I've included how it looks as a pdf and what I'm seeing in Excel. 

 

I'm using Office Professional Plus 2016 if that makes a difference. Any and all help is appreciated. 

 

***UPDATE: It seems any border I try to apply to the outside of the table doesn't apply. The below should have the ugly bright red around all the sides.

Hey @PerryDigitalAgency ,

 

Maybe try selecting the entire table and Erasing the border. This option is found in the font group of the Home tab in the Borders drop down.

@Excel_World_Champion  Unfortunately that didn't do anything either. Thank you though!  

Hey @PerryDigitalAgency 

 

Maybe try using the No Border option instead after selecting the table
