I have some code to print a dbgrid from a dataset, what I need now is to create the lines between the data which will make the report to look like a grid also, I want to place a qrshape horline on each row and a vertline on each column.
procedure TTGridreport.Preview(grid: TDBGrid);
var
  i, CurrentLeft, CurrentTop : integer;
  BMark: TBookmark;
  begin
  GridRep.Dataset:=  Grid.DataSource.DataSet;
 
  if not (GridRep.Bands.HasColumnHeader) then
    GridRep.Bands.HasColumnHeader:=true;
 
  if not (GridRep.Bands.HasDetail) then
    GridRep.Bands.HasDetail:=true;
 
  GridRep.Bands.ColumnHeaderBand.Height:=Abs(Grid.TitleFont.Height) + 10;
  GridRep.Bands.DetailBand.Height:=Abs(Grid.Font.Height) + 10;
  CurrentLeft := 6;
  CurrentTop := 6;
 
  {Record where the user stopped in the DBGrid}
  BMark:=Grid.DataSource.DataSet.GetBookmark;
  {Don't let the grid flicker while the report is running}
  Grid.DataSource.DataSet.DisableControls;
  try
    for i:=0 to Grid.FieldCount - 1 do
    begin
      if (CurrentLeft + Canvas.TextWidth(Grid.Columns[i].Title.Caption)) >
        (GridRep.Bands.ColumnHeaderBand.Width) then
      begin 
        CurrentLeft := 12;
        CurrentTop := CurrentTop + Canvas.TextHeight('A') + 6; 
        GridRep.Bands.ColumnHeaderBand.Height := GridRep.Bands.ColumnHeaderBand.Height +
          (Canvas.TextHeight('A') + 10); 
        GridRep.Bands.DetailBand.Height := GridRep.Bands.DetailBand.Height +
          (Canvas.TextHeight('A') + 10);
      end;
      {Create Header with QRLabels}
      with TQRLabel.Create(GridRep.Bands.ColumnHeaderBand) do
      begin 
        Parent := GridRep.Bands.ColumnHeaderBand;
        Color := GridRep.Bands.ColumnHeaderBand.Color; 
        Left := CurrentLeft;
        Top := CurrentTop; 
        Caption:=Grid.Columns[i].Title.Caption;
      end; 
      {Create Detail with QRDBText}
      with TQRDbText.Create(GridRep.Bands.DetailBand) do 
      begin
        Parent := GridRep.Bands.DetailBand; 
        Color := GridRep.Bands.DetailBand.Color;
        Left := CurrentLeft; 
        Top := CurrentTop;
        Alignment:=Grid.Columns[i].Alignment; 
        AutoSize:=false;
        AutoStretch:=true; 
        Width:=Grid.Columns[i].Width;
        Dataset:=GridRep.Dataset;
        DataField:=Grid.Fields[i].FieldName;
        CurrentLeft:=CurrentLeft + (Grid.Columns[i].Width) + 10; 
      end;
    end; 
 
    lblPage.Left := bdTitle.Width - lblPage.Width - 10;
    lblDate.Left := bdTitle.Width - lblDate.Width - 10;
 
    {After all, call the QuickRep preview method}
    GridRep.PreviewModal; {or Preview if you prefer} 
 
  finally 
    with Grid.DataSource.DataSet do
    begin 
      GotoBookmark(BMark);
      FreeBookmark(BMark); 
      EnableControls;
    end; 
  end;
end;

For this kind of report, I'm using TQRShape type qrsVertLine,
and for the bands (header, detail, footer..) > Frame.
You can achieve the goal, this way:

GridRep.Bands.ColumnHeaderBand.Frame.DrawTop := True;
GridRep.Bands.ColumnHeaderBand.Frame.DrawLeft := True;
GridRep.Bands.ColumnHeaderBand.Frame.DrawRigth := True;
GridRep.Bands.ColumnHeaderBand.Frame.DrawBottom := True;
GridRep.Bands.ColumnHeaderBand.Frame.Style := psSolid;
GridRep.Bands.ColumnHeaderBand.Frame.Width := 1;

GridRep.Bands.DetaiBand.Frame.DrawLeft := True;
GridRep.Bands.DetaiBand.Frame.DrawRigth := True;
GridRep.Bands.DetaiBand.Frame.DrawBottom := True;
GridRep.Bands.DetaiBand.Frame.Style := psSolid;
