Moving fields around in a Form

P: n/a
Is there a way to just move the field values and not the field descriptions
within a form in design view? I try to grab just those values and it takes
the descriptions with it. Some field names are a bit long and are running
into the values. I just want to move the values over a few grids so I can
see the description. There has to be a way. Thanks

Select the control you wish to move.
The control and it's attached label become selected.
There will be a square in the upper left corner of the control.
Move the cursor over that square and it becomes a finger pointer.
Left-click on that square, hold and drag, and you can move that
control without moving it's attached label (and vice versa).

Thanks! Works great. Now can I do it for a range of field values not just
one at a time? I want to move a bunch of them the same distance.

Sometimes what I do is make my labels all the same size. Click to
select the labels and from the menu select Format/Size. Then I can
select Format/Align to move them into aligned positions.
