XLS Border Formatter

The XLS Border Formatter node changes cell borders of a given range (not necessarily rectangular) specified by tags in a control table. You can select which borders of the matching cells shall be displayed in which style and optionally also change the border color accordingly.

This node defines a formatting instruction only. It needs to be written to an xlsx file via the XLS Formatter (apply) node subsequently.


Tag Selection

applies to tag (single tag only)
Tag in your input table for which the formatting of this node should be applied to.
applies to all tags
Instead of specifying a single tag, the border formatting is applied repetitively to all distinct tags found in the control table. Note that in this case, no comma-separated tag list splitting is applied but the full cell content qualifies as a tag.

This option eases definition of adjacent border ranges based on the original data table's values.
