Creating labels and text boxes
Creating labels and text boxes
If you add a field from the Field List pane, the field is often
displayed as a text box with an associated label (attached to
the text box). You can add other unbound text boxes and labels
from the label and text box controls.
Labels can be used to provide additional descriptive
information, and text boxes can remain unbound, gathering choices
made by a user, or can be bound to an existing field in the
form’s record source via the control’s Control Source property.

TIP If you plan on later referring to the control by using
macros or other programming, ensure that you change the
Control Name property to something more meaningful than the
default naming. For example, you could change a text box named
Text0 to txtCustomerName.
