Hello Geetanjail, 

My name is Lovell and I am with QuickBase Care. Thank you for your question. It isn't possible to do this via native QuickBase. You may be able to have a solution coded by a QuickBase Partner.

This jQuery command will turn the background of the header cells to yellow:

$("table.searchResults thead tr.hd td").css("background-color", "yellow");

However, to execute the above statement you have to be able to immediately run your JavaScript code as soon as the unembelished summary report is displayed. Since summary reports do not include raw field values you cannot use the image onload technique to inject your JavaScript. So the best option may be to place your summary report in a user defined page. When forming the URL for the summary report you could add the parameter "&ifv=0" to the end of the ULR - this will suppress all the "chrome" QuickBase will otherwise place on the page and just display the raw summary report. 
If you need additional help with this or if you want to display the summary report in other area of QuickBase feel free to contact me using the information in my profile.
