It might depend on what sort of row you're trying to base the line on, but in general, it shouldn't be hard to control a line's height. If you create a line on the report, called Line0, then set the line's height using something like this:

Line0.Height = Text1.Height + .5

Where Text1 would be the name of a particular control, like a textbox. You'd then have to put that line in an event that would trigger when the height is changed, depending on the control and whether anything else you're doing also could change the height. For instance, if you're automatically resizing things when the report is resized, you'd want it in the report's Resize event. You might need to adjust the Top parameter too if it needs to shift vertically as the result of things above it shifting.

So I think to give any more specific advice, you'll need to be more specific about what will affect the line's height, I think.
