I am building a report and I will like to place a border around the entire report.

My problem is that when I the detail section only takes up a portion of the page I have a gap between the detail section and the footer section.

Is there a way to just place an entire border around a report page?

  Use the OnPage event to draw a border around a page.  Would look something like this:

Private Sub Report_Page()

Me.DrawStyle = 0
Me.DrawWidth = 11

' Draw a border around the page.
Me.Line (0, 0)-(Me.ScaleWidth, Me.ScaleHeight), , B

End Sub
