I did not know that Veena, thanks for coming to OP's aid. Also found right-clicking on the DataReport, choosing properties and inserting control helps get a line there if that's also an option OP might want to have a look at. I actually just figured it out and came on to add.

Have a great week-end! Both of you, and nice to meet you:-)

Hi Dokoll,

Charvi wanted a Dark Line.
Of course there is a Line Control in DataReports, we can simply place that, but we cannot change the Thickness of the Line.
That's the reason, i suggested to use a Rectangle Shape with reduced height, it looks like a Thick Line..

Another Tip of interest:
If you need to place darkshade behind the report title or to draw a border of header row yo may try this;

... Extent the width of every label for each heading to join it to the next one
.... For every label set following properties
BackColor: A color of your choice
BackStyle: rptBkOpaque
It will create a nice and darker shaded line of header row.

Sorry if you don't find it interesting.

Peace
