    Thanks in advance

    In Northwind database, there is a report, named as Alphabetical List of
    Products.
    In it is a text box named as DatePrinted(=Format(Date(),"dd-mmm-yyyy).
    This control seems missing a label.

    Q1. Why do we need labels being attached to parent controls.
    Q2. If I delete a label attached to parent control, what consequences is
    going to happen. Can I still access parent controls? Why we delete labels?

    Because it's easier to delete an unneeded label than to create a new
    one, I'd presume. The Access developers were just trying to save you
    time.

    Nothing will happen to the control. It will still exist, still be
    available, still work - it just won't have a label.
