Placing a border around a header, detail and footer on an Access report

Is there a format control where I can paint a border around the group header, detail and group footer as opposed to having a separate border around each object?

Thanks

No.  Controls are tied to a single report section.  You'll need to draw part of the border in each section as appropriate.

That's what I thought.

Thanks

Just to add on, there are two things you might do:

1. On the OnPage event, you can draw borders.   Here I would hold the top property of each section in variables as I worked down the page.  Then in the OnPage event you could draw the lines to border everything.

2. You can at the start of the page, draw a border around the entire page.  Then in the sections, draw a horizontal line as needed.   You'd end up with sections then on your page.
