Subreport Without Borders

Hi guys - does anyone know of a way to set the defaults so that inserted subreports do not have borders?  90% of the time when I insert a subreport I have to change all 4 borders from 'single' to 'none' and this is an trivial thing that annoys me endlessly.

I don't think this can be done but I'm hoping one of you knows something I don't.  CR9 if it matters.

Thanks in advance,

frodoman

There must be a default setting because none of my reports insert with borders.  Which version?  I have CR8 and 7.

Emre,

I'm not looking for programatic - that can be done.  I'm just talking about in the Crystal designer when I'm createing reports.  You can set the defaults with File -> Options -> Fields -> String -> Borders   but I can't find anything similar for subreports.

I don't want to post work info here - check my user profile in a few minutes and I'll put a private e-mail address up there where you can contact me directly.

mlmcc - CR9 is what I'm currently working with.  I know it should be there but I've even had someone else look over my shoulder and we can't seem to find it... - frodoman

I just looked in the CR7 options and it isn't there.  Seems like it should be an option somewhere.

good luck

In CR9 you can use the border button on the toolbar to remove the subreport border rather than having to go to the Format, Borders and then remove each side of the border.  It would be nice to have the subreport border be an option you can set but at least the border button is better than nothing.

>>> at least the border button is better than nothing.

Thanks bdreed - that at least makes it less inconvenient.

Well, I've heard from everyone I expected to hear from - points split as appreciation for at least taking the time to respond.

Thanks to all,
