Default database field table lines

Hi,


is there any way to draw horizontal lines to table when data is fetched?
I have only vertical lines and I have already tried setting the defaults for word, table drawing etc but no success so far...


Any hint, please?


Thx and regards

The table format for a DATABASE field depends on which \b & \l switch values you use. Try, for example:
\b 16 \l 1

Thank you for the quick reply, it works, I have got a nice table now.


BUT, let me ask one more question:
what makes the difference between your example : " \l "1" \b "16" \h


and mine : " \l "15" \b "49" \h

?

The \l and \b switches define the table format. See: Field codes: Database field - Office Support
