[AccessD] Vertical line in detail section

Dear List:
I have a client who wants vertical lines in the detail section between data
fields.  This is no problem when the detail section is a fixed height. I've
done lots of those before - just make the vertical line the exact height of
the detail section and you get a nice continuous vertical line wherever you
want it on the report.
Problem in this case is that there are "Can Grow" fields in the detail
section which makes the detail height different for each detail line.
I put a MsgBox Me.Detail.Height in the Format, Retreat and Print events to
see if I could find out how high the section was but it always comes up with
the original design height, not the height of the detail section with the
expanded "Can Grow" text boxes.
So is there a way to know the height of the detail section at a point where
I could still adjust the vertical line height to fill the section?
