Description Unknown 2003-09-10 10:10:20 UTC
In Spreadsheet we can have different kinds of borders (single, double, thick). 
How about "curly brackets" border

The reason is say I have three rows and the first column is seperate for all
three rows but the second and third one is just one column of merged fields and
I want to show a bracket agains the fields.  

I know there are ways around it like I can merge one more column between the
first and second column and put a bracket and increase the font but most users
might find the curly brackets useful.

It is also useful for showing the totals of two columns or complex columns like
total of A + B, Total of B + C and then total of both all with curly brackets in
between will make reading so much easier

Hello edwardlobo, could you please attach an example to visualize it?
Thank you.

This could look like below:


I dont think it might be possible to stretch one bracket accross rows
or columns so each row can have one bracket.  

Another way for a user to do it is to have one more blank column next
to the one he wants brackets for and just type them there
