Put the cursor in the cell. On the Home ribbon tab, in the Paragraph group,
click the little arrow next to the Border button (the last one in the second
row of the group) and choose the diagonal border. That offers only one
diagonal at a time, but that may be enough for you.
The alternative is to use the line tool (Insert tab, Illustrations group,
Shapes button) to draw lines.

Does anyone know how to insert diagonal lines inside a cell?
I'm using Microsoft Word 2007 and I created monthly calendars from
January-December. I would like to "X" out the respective days of the
week after they have passed, but I can't figure out how to do that in
I've tried inserting the multiplication symbol and enlarging it, but
it doesn't work well. Any other ideas?
