    Hi 

    To add to this for your specific example the best way to approach this is to remove the existing grid by selecting 'None'  then select the 'Expense'  column and select the  'Left' option (as this is the column you logically want the line to be the left of), for completeness you could do the same and select 'Right' while having the 'Cost' column selected.

     

    which will give you the desired result.

     

    thanks

       without knowing the exact use case above, Im assuming that when you apply a grid line (or other formatting) to a parent member it affects its children. If you look at my formatted  grid below

      I achieved this by clearing all the grid lines and putting a line to the left of the 'Cost' column and a line to the right of the 'Margin' column , I also colored the 'Margin' column grey. Finally I select the Australia row and put a border at the top. Which gives the formatted grid shown

       

      However I believe you may have tried to format a member above the column first entry (the measures in my example) so if I select the Accessories column in my example you can see how it selects all the columns it contains, therefore if I now try and select a line or another formatting option it will affect these columns

      if I select  left on the grid element it will apply a left border to each of the columns below it, as shown below

      I hope this explains what you might be experiencing and how the selection of the order of grid elements and their location in the rows and columns also add to this

       

      thanks

      Hi  

      I have implemented the same style, however, the client is requesting borders to be incorporated in all the marked areas as outlined in yellow color below. I have considered the hierarchy's impact on the borders, and upon implementation, it appeared visually not good in the Presentation dashboard. Kindly advise if there are alternative solutions available, or if this could be considered an enhancement, or if it may not be feasible altogether.
