Hello Tony,
Thanks for your support. im using XSL-Formatter by Antenna House. I've no
idea whether its suporting border-collapse or not.
Actullay i want a table design to be like in the attached file.where there
will be no row border shown accept the header. now when the data will be
populated the table will grow accordingly and as soon as the page break
comes the end of table line will be shown and the table will continue to the
next page.
but i guess thats not possible so far as far as I got the idea from Tonyz
mail.
is it?
thanks any ways.
Regards,
Saqib Javed
