This sound like a simple task is the slipping under my eyes. How can I create a border for a report in Access 2007?

Access 2007 does not have a report border function or wizard. I don't see the option in 2010 either.

Here are a couple sites to do it in code so it should vary in size to match your report data and pages.

I use this:  http://www.lebans.com/PrintLines.htm

 
PrintLinesClass - Create Vertical lines, Borders and boxes with the addition of a simple to use Class to your project. PrintLinesClassA97      or PrintLinesClass2K

    Draw Borders around individual Sections of your Report.
    Draw Vertical Lines  in individual Sections of your Report.
    Specify DrawWidth, DrawStyle, DrawMode and Line Color for each individual Section.
    Use Intellisense to set the Section Properties.

Correctly handles CanGrow and KeepTogether properties for the Report Sections and individual Controls.
