Vertical Lines on Report

    I am making a report that needs vertical lines to be on the page that go down to the page footer. I've put the lines in a group footer but the length of the vertical lines, and height of the groupfooter, depends on the size of the details section. Therefore is there a way to automatically change the length of the vertical line to make it always appear the same length on the report regardless of the data in the Details section.

    Thank you for your post. If you wish a vertical line to extend to the bottom of a section in the report, you need to set its anchorbottom property to true.



    Me.Line1.AnchorBottom=True.

    Thanks for your reply. However, I need the vertical line to run to the bottom of the page, regardless of the size of the Details section. The vertical line is continued after the Details in a Group Footer, however I do know how large the footer must be to reach the bottom of the page. Is there a way of automatically adjusting it to be the correct size? I could then adjust the vertical line to fit the whole section. Just to give you a better idea of my problem, I've attached an example of the report I am preparing.



    Many thanks
