How to: Add a Border to a Report (Report Builder 3.0 and SSRS)

You can add a border to a report by adding borders to the headers, footers, and report body themselves, without adding lines or rectangles.

If you add a report border that appears on the page header and footer, do not suppress the header and footer on the first and last pages of the report. If you do, the border may appear cut off at the top or bottom of the first and last pages of the report. For more information, see Adding Page Headers and Footers (Report Builder 3.0 and SSRS).

NoteNote

You can create and modify report definitions (.rdl) in Report Builder 3.0 and in Report Designer in Business Intelligence Development Studio. Each authoring environment provides different ways to create, open, and save reports and related items. For more information, see Designing Reports in Report Designer and Report Builder 3.0 (SSRS) on the Web at microsoft.com.

To add a border to a report

  1. Right-click in the header outside any items in the header, and click Header Properties. On the Border tab, add a left, top, and right border with the style you want.

    NoteNote

    If you do not use headers in your report, you can place borders around just the report body, or you can add headers from the Insert tab.

  2. Right-click in the body outside any items on the design surface, and click Body Properties. On the Border tab, add a left and right border with the style you want.

  3. Right-click in the footer outside any items in the footer, and click Footer Properties. On the Border tab, add a left, bottom, and right border with the style you want.
