This is a little tricky for reasons that are unclear to me. You cannot 
make a line/border around the entire table in one fell swoop.
If you double-click a cell in the table to select it, you will see 
appear at the bottom of the shape tab of Properties an ability to make 
the borders print a line, each side one-by-one, after which line styles 
and color would apply.
If you want to make a border around the entire table, it might be 
easiest to make a frame of one kind or another with a transparent 
background on top of the table with the appropriate dimensions.
