I have a simple table:

\begin{table}[htbp]
    \centering
    \begin{tabular}{|c|c|c|}
        \hline
        X & Y & Z \\ \hline
        &   &   \\ \hline 
        &   &   \\ \hline
        &   &   \\ 
        \hline
    \end{tabular}
\end{table}

I would like to remove the border from all cells in the last column Z.

Is this possible by any chance?

Use \cline{1-2} instead of \hline and use {|c|c|c} in the column specification of your tabular environment. – Jubobs Apr 7 '13 at 18:52

You should remove the last vertical line from the tabular column specification, and use \clines:

enter image description here

\documentclass{article}
\begin{document}
\begin{tabular}{|c|c|c|}
    \hline
    X & Y & Z \\ \hline
    1 &   &   \\ \hline 
    & 2  &   \\ \hline
    &   & 3  \\ 
    \hline
\end{tabular}

\begin{tabular}{|c|c|c}
    \cline{1-2}
    X & Y & Z \\ \cline{1-2}
    1 &   &   \\ \cline{1-2} 
    & 2  &   \\ \cline{1-2}
    &   & 3  \\ 
    \cline{1-2}
\end{tabular}

\end{document}
