As a complete novice can any one tell me how to set up a drawing border for A4 in metric. And if possible tell me how my details for example a pipe which is 400 mm long can fit in this area.Many thanks

You need to get a handle on model space (where, in your case, you would draw your pipe) and paper space (where you would put your title block/border).

 

Read this until the end of 'Create the viewport'. Note: your scale will be 1/2xp.

From there, all you have to do is draw your border in paper space. It takes a bit of getting used to model & paper space but once you get it, it's easy and very helpful. Good luck
