    I'm using Works 2000 V.5 on 98SE. Want to retain grid lines when printing Also would like to create a custom form- none of the examples are useful.

    I have that version, there's doesn't seem to be that option. As an alternative, try selecting the records and applying left -- right -- top -- bottom borders (via Format -- Border).

    EDIT: my mistake ; File -- Page Setup -- Other Options.

    By "custom form", do you mean an input form, like Access? Don't know, will look it up.

    Basically you can switch between views ("List" ; "Form" ; "Form Design") from the View menu. In Form Design, you drag fields around at will. You navigate records like Access, with the controls at the bottom left of the window. The help for "Custom Form (Design a database form)" seems fairly straightforward ; any particular aspect you're stuck on?
