KBV - Adding a newly added field to a form

    If I add a new field to a table that is connected to a form, I can then go to
    that form and drag that new field onto the form to make it appear. How do I
    add the associated label? Also, can I add the same field to a form twice?

    Thank you,

    Dragging the field onto the form should add the label as well, unless you've
    told Access not to add labels. If you have, simply add a label to the form,
    cut it, select the text box, and paste the label to associate the two.

    Yes, you can add the same field multiple times.

    Thank you - can you give me an example of when you would want to add 2 fields
    at the same time?

    Not sure what you're asking.

    When you're creating a form, you often add multiple fields at a time, and
    reposition them once they're on the form.

    KBV,

    I am not sure about your question.

    First you asked about putting a field on the form twice
    and then you
    ask about when would you want to add two fields at the same time.

    Did you get the answer(s) you needed?

    Ron
