I just took a look at the template you are referring to. On the
cover, the gray bars are a graphic object (handles appear). On the
next page, in the "How To Use This Report Template" heading, they are
paragraph shading (set at 10%). You can select the line, then choose
FORMAT | BORDERS & SHADING, then select the Shading tab and change it
to None. You could also do this through the button on the toolbar
that handles borders (next to the paragraph indent button).
Hope this helps.

Several wrote me privately with suggestions along this line. I tried
every one of them, and that gray bar is apparently not an object. No
handles appear around it when looked at as text or as graphics. I can't
position the cursor on it nohow noway. <frustrated sigh>
There *are* bars used as part of the formatting for some of the heads,
Heading 1 in particular, and those are clickable. But those bars are
black, with reverse lettering for the head, and I could change the
shading on those just fine.
Where would one look for something that appears on an odd page only if
it isn't part of the page setup, isn't part of the header style, and
isn't an object?
