Grid in Subhead
Does anyone know if it is possible to have a grid in a subhead (PDF format). I can get borders around the whole subhead but not for individual fields/text.

I ran into the same problem with subhead/subfoot. Only in my case it concerned coloring various parts of the subhead/subfoot which are on the same line. Works fine in html, but PDF takes the first color and applies it to the entire line. Same with borders....

Sorry, I haven't been able to get it right.

You may be able to achieve this if the grid you want is like a report.

If so you can use the PDF Layout Painter in Dev Studio to create a report that has two reports on one page, your current one and the second can be placed in the heading area.

The second report, being a report can have grids or borders on.

It could be a little tricky to set up but is doable.

Hope this helps

Pity the lost knowledge of an old programmer!
