You can add a label that is not the child of another control to a form. You can do this if you want to have descriptive text on the form, such as instructions about using the form or other static information that is not related to any database table field.

To add a label

  1. In Form Designer, open a form.

  2. Open the Toolbox and select the Label tool.

  3. Move the cursor into the design area.

  4. Click to create a label of the default size, or use a drag-and-drop operation to create a label of a different size.
