Printing

I have to write a program that generates a list of Long integers (6 digits) and prints out in a grid style format.
-----------------------------------------------------
| 130016  |                                 |       |
-----------------------------------------------------
| 130017  |                                 |       |
-----------------------------------------------------

etc. (this may not look right on here).

I have got the code to pick up the number using a text file or an Access database (I've tried both).  The user then inputs the amount of numbers to generate.

Is there a "easy" way to to draw boxes around printed output?  The line statement lost me a little!

Thanks

Are you using the B at the end of the line statement.  This draws boxes instead of lines.  One word of caution draw the boxes before you print the text of the boxes are filled white and overwrite your text.
ex.
line (0, 0)-(100,100),,B
Check the syntax at the end of this line.
