If you can be VERY specific with regard to which bars (in the basic template)
you are troubled by, I will try to see what I can find out. Every one I tried
worked, but I'm sure I didn't get them all.

In my version of the template, there are two gray bars on the title page, one
behind "Blue Sky Associates", and one at the bottom of the page. On the first
page of the report, there is a gray bar in the upper right hand area of the
page, the headings have shading, and there is a vertical bar in the middle of
the page (marking a quote). On the third page, there is a table with some
shading, and a vertical bar along the last paragraph, again marking another
quotation. Does this correspond to your version of the template? If not, I
probably can't help. If so, which of these is giving you a problem?

Please contact me direct. (You might try to attach a copy of the problem file,
or some pages from it, but I can't guarantee that our corporate gateway will
allow it to pass.

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?
