If this is the "border" around an individual cell, try right-clicking while the cell is selected and choosing "Borders" from the menu. I would guess the lineweight setting is bumped up. I think the default is "ByBlock".
To affect the entire table, it may be necessary to modify the table style.
This "border" is supposed to display the row and column labels, so it has to be fairly wide, but the labels don't appear in the image you posted. It appears that the table must have been defined with a Table Indicator Color that (somehow) matches the color of the labels.
Try this: select the table, right-click, select Table Indicator Color from the menu, and change it to a clearly different color (maybe one from the Index Color tab). You may have to de-select and re-select the table to see the change.
I changed the Table Indicator Color to yellow and got this with 2 differend tables in 1 drawing :
So with the first it works as you say but the other 1 has another thick line inside. Has this to do with the Excel file cell properties connected to this table ?
Ok the first 1 is a table that is not linked to excel but the second is linked, but why these extra thick lines ?
Sounds like you're on to something...
I have no experience with the linked variety of AutoCAD tables, so hopefully someone who has will offer some assistance.
Acad help :
Its a Linked data indicator, but this command has no info on how to change the thickness. Its not changed by the line type scale or lineweight of the layer that its in.
I can scale it to :
I know it for sure, the table is my most favorite object ! (not)
I updated 2 tables in the same xls, 1 updates perfect, the othe 1 gets 10 times smaler. Same table style, nice....
If I do a properties override it gets a lot smaller !

This could be a solution but I'm gonna test it some more.
HEY... check your 'text style' I had my current text style at 9" height in paper space which made my borders thick. I deleted my table and datalink. reestablished my 'text style' for 'table-use' only and put TEXT HEIGHT at 0". i set that as 'current' then set up the datalink then the table and VOILA the idiotic THICK border is gone. try that. it worked for me just now and i'm SUPER happy.
