That  mean there  is no  ready  made solution,  one has  to resort  to

Thanks for sending this piece of code, but to my bad luck, I could not
use  it to  produce desired  results. I  added this  code just  before
\begin{document}, but result remain same,  no change in appearance and
even no error while running LaTex.

Is there any typical way to use it.
