No, you'd need to resort to trickery to do this. If you cannot simply make your cell a little bit smaller (why not?), you can always create a custom stroke that only takes up half the "usual" width and apply that.
To implement Jongware's second suggestion, you'll need to make a custom stroke style of type "stripe" and only fill part of the width. The weight of the stroke will determine the offset and apparent "weight" of the cell stroke.
I support the suggestion of creating a custom stroke style to do this. In case you're unfamiliar with this feature, choose Stroke Style from the Stroke panel menu. There are three kinds of stroke styles you can create—dashed stroke, dotted stroke, and stripe stroke. You can to create a stripe stroke style.
Thanks for the suggestion. Hadn't thought of trying a custom stroke.
The problem with that solution, however, is that a custom stripe stroke probably can't have dots. Basically I have a big cell and need a dotted stroke to sit just inside it's borders. I may just draw in the stoke manually, on top of the table cell.
It's always helpfule to tell us the whole story from the start.
You could paste a frame with the dotted stroke inside the cell.
