Unwanted save of changes to GUI

P: n/a
I have a Access 2K2 db that is used on the network. I have a main
form that dependant upon the selected option loads the appropriate
subform. when it does this several label captions change to reflect
the nature of the selection. Now for some reason there is a
particular view of this form and subforms in which there is a
selparate filtered recordset that is set as the main forms
recordsource. It basically represents the accounts to perform tasks
on for a selected task based coming from a totally different form.
All other functionality is the same. The problem is when the user
closes the form it is saving the last caption of the labels so the
next time it open it show the worng label information and is saved
when I go look at the label properties. I have no idea why as I never
have any changes being purposly saved. I expect it to go back to the
default setting I have hardcoded...but it won't.

Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

Are you opening the form in design view to make these changes? You
shouldn't. If you make the changes in normal view then they will
automatically be temporary to the current instance of the form.

you may need to also set the forms "Allow Design Changes" property to
"Design View Only" to eliminate the saving of changes on the form. By
default In Access 2000, A2K, A2K3, this property is set to "All Views".

Really? Yet another misfeature (at least to make it the default).
