Access Create Box around tabular report on form

Hi

In my Access tabular report shown in the first image, I need to create a box around it with vertical column lines and a grey header
like that shown in the second image. How can I do this in Access reports?

Thanks

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You can include vertical lines in your report's Detail section for the vertical lines.

You can add the top "grey box" in the Report or Page Header section.

You can add a horizontal line to the report's Page Footer section to the lower line.

You may need to add a Group section, however, and do these things in the Group Section to get this type of effect.

Or perhaps use something like this: http://www.lebans.com/PrintLines.htm
