Default easiest way to create gridlines in an Access 2003 report

Does anyone know an easy way to create gridlines in an Access 2003 report so
that it resembles a spreadsheet, other than manually drawing vertical and
horizontal lines?

You can use the Line method of the report in its Page event.
Use a loop to repeat at whatever grid size you want.
Measurements are in twips, where 1440 twips = 1 inch

This is how the Line method works:
Me.Line (Me.ScaleTop, Me.ScaleLeft)-(Me.ScaleTop, Me.ScaleHeight), vbRed
