Datasheet view

I need my form to be a datasheet. But in this case the headings of columns are the field names, not the captions. But it does't suit me (the name like Person_ID is not good for the user). How can I change it?

You can't change it. You can create continuous form , that looks like datasheet form.

stern if you drag the field from the field list, you should see a ^label^ and ^textbox or combo^ box.
for example ^Person_ID^ change the text box to ^Person ID^ and you can see the difference

bs316, dragging fields from field list applies to Single form and contnuous form view only,not to datasheet view.

i don't know but if you try create a new form and drag a field down and change the text box then limit the view to datasheet only and you will see what i mean

sorry what i mean is the label not the text box
if you change the label you can change the display

Ok, spiridonov, I also see no other possibility. Changing labels gives nothing. The points are in any case yours. Thanks.
