Labels and Click Events

P: n/a
DS
Any known problems or downsides to using Click Events to fire off
Macros on Labels instead of using Command Buttons. The Labels give me
much more flexability as far as the design goes instead of the Command
Buttons. Thanks. Any input is appreciated.

That works fine, though there is a cosmetic issue in Access 2003.

If the label's Parent is not the form itself (e.g. if it is on the page of a
tab control), the label flickers whenever you pass the mouse over it, and
this can be annoying. Details:

1. The label can not receive the focus meaning that the user can not cancel
the click by holding the button and moving away

2. the label can not receive the focus and therefore you can not run a
"record specific" command in a continuous form (ie. the label you click on
is not related to the record that is looks like it should be relating to...)

Hope this makes sense
