In Excel, if you go to Format > Cells… > Font > Underline, you can select from the Underline pulldown menu Single Accounting and Double Accounting underline styles, which, among other things, will leave a small space at the edges of each cell so that the underlines of adjacent cells are non-touching (see this accounting article for more on the concept).

In Google Sheets, I can replicate the look of this by using the cell's bottom border (single or double) and including narrow spacer columns between cells that would otherwise be adjacent to replicate the spacing. However, that can be a headache and is certainly more effort than needed in Excel. Is there any better equivalent to Excel in Google Sheets?
