 Quick Report experts needed.

I have previously posted a query about Quickreport and have got no
response so I'm trying again.

I want to produce a tabular report with boxes around the fields,
however one of the fields is a memo, and this is causing problems.

The boxes are created using a collection of vertical and horizontal
lines. Now the vertical lines are fixed in length when you design the
report, but the band that they cover grows at runtime to allow the
memo field to word wrap onto multiple lines. This is causing the
vertical lines to not match up to the horizontal lines, they are too
short.

Is there a way of determining how long the lines should be at runtime
and changing the length property of the vertical lines in the OnPrint
event ?

Can anyone help here ?

Scott,

Is it possible to create a band just for the memo?  You can use a property of
the band to draw a frame around the band (which makes a neat square!)...

You may want to experiment with this feature.  I use it alot to just underline
an area of a report.

Which property of the band is this Mike ? I have played around with
the Frame properties to no effect. Can you give me some more details ?
