Having multiple labels for the same control

P: 1
very much a beginner here, trying to teach myself how to MS Access!

First question: Is it possible to have multiple labels for the same text box or other control?

I was hoping to have both a label and some descriptive text associated with each control, but Access doesn't seem to like having multiple labels.

Welcome to Bytes!

You cannot have two labels for one control. However, each control does have a property called "Tag" in which you can add additional information about that control. I sometimes have even placed additional information there that I use elsewhere within my forms.

Hope this hepps.

While you can't actually associate more than one label control with another control, be it a TextBox, a ComboBox, or any other type, you can put unattached labels anywhere you like on a Form or Report. Why you'd want to is not something I've worked out yet but it's possible.

Another Control Property you may be interested in is the ControlTipText. This is shown when you hover over a Control, or its associated label, with your mouse cursor.
