Rectangles and Lines cause blank page

Rectangles and Lines cause blank page

Rectangles and Lines cause blank page

I have a report that the request is to print a border around the body. The body is about 1.5 pages long for each detail section. When I add the vertical line in the report generates a blank page then prints the data. How can I stop this from happening?

I have tried drawing a line that is 10 inches long (to accommodate for the margins) but the second detail record will not print continuous. It moves to the second page I'm assuming because of the 10 inch line.

Hopefully I have explained the issue enough.

Thank you


RE: Rectangles and Lines cause blank page

If you are interested in placing a line or rectangle on every page, you can use code like the following which draws a rectangle on each page. You can change the 6 and 8 which represent inches

CODE --> vba

Private Sub Report_Page()
    Me.DrawWidth = 6
    Me.Line (0, 0)-Step(1440 * 6, 1440 * 8.5), , B
End Sub

Also have a look at the margins in page setup - could be too big?
