Quickreports - detail band question

I have Delphi 3 Professional.  I am using the build in quick reports 2.0.  I have a detail band with fields of a query on it.  I want the output to have grids on it, sorta like a spreadsheet.  I have tried the drawtop, drawbotton, etc.  Unfortunately, the lines are inconsistent with overlay, and small breaks.  Is there a QRGrid component somewhere?
Thanks.

I explain a bit more, as I really  don't want to manually draw the boxes on the detail band.

I have a detail band with QRDBText objects on it.  The source for these objects is a Query I have define.  When the report is run, I want the output to 'look' like a spread sheet. Envision a DBGrid for a quickreport.

I only want to use Shapes as a last resort, as that will be cumbersome.

thanks,
Darryl

Okay, then you can use (as you described) the drawtop and so on properties. However: make sure that all the QRDBText boxes are a fixed length (no auto-size !) ! Then it should work!
