@Urlike Fischer and Zdenek- yes, you are right. I removed the extra tikz
package and I could get the vertical rules; see the attachment. There are
still a similar issue with another document; I shall write once I get
details of it.
@Zdenek Wagner <https://plus.google.com/u/1/106075650385658344372?prsrc=4>-
I could not make this trick work; may be I am making a mistake.
@Wilfred van Rooijen- sorry that this is not a MWE.

Thank you all!

With best regards,
