Hi,

I typed an ampersand sign "&" in the caption of a button (Access 2000) and
it displays as an underscore "_".
Any Ideas?

Thanks in advance for any help offered...

Access uses the "&" to indicate a Quick Key, so if you make the button
caption "Amper &Sand", the S will appear underlined and Alt-S will "push"
the button. If you want an actual ampersand to appear on the button, use 2
of them (&&). For example "Amper &&Sand", will appear as Amper &Sand,
where "Amper &Sand" will show as Amper Sand" (with the S underlined).
