I think if it is given in table it should be in table row fills.
If not it is in text
There is an another option available
It is seen in Paragraph palatte(side options – paragraph rule)
The shortcut key for paragraph rule is Alt+Ctrl+J(for win) Comd+opt+J(for mac)
Thanks for your reply.....Paragraph Rules has not been aplied to create the effect and its not in a table ot row..any other ideas? its driving me a bit crazy!
Possibly a graphic. Check the layers panel for any locked layers. There's a triangle beside each layer, which will expand to reveal sub layers. (CS5 only)
If not then try Object>Unlock All on Spread (or similar command)
This should be done in a table, which would be far more efficient.
